Hi there! We are John & Jo Williams (Owners). We have known each other for many years but reconnected in 2011 and fell in love! We blended our families and have been happily juggling the crazy ever since. Together we have five amazing kids and one fabulous son-in-law. We BOTH have a great love for family, friends, fashion and fun!
After 20 years of loving this beautiful building as a family, it was finally Jo's turn to create something fun in the space. That is when the idea of Merk & Tilley's came to life, a fun play on the word Mercantile. We began in two small rooms in June of 2019. Since then, we have slowly expanded room by room, floor by floor, and now we have two floors, over 7,000 sq. ft., full of amazing M&T finds and several fabulous local vendors for you to support small.
We have enjoyed the journey every step of the way! Our goal was to create Small Town Charm, while bringing in Big City Appeal. We currently carry some amazing brands, and as we grow we are constantly on the hunt for new companies and trending products.
