David Fisher, GA Field Coordinator makes good on dream of a new store in Whitesburg. Railroad Street Mercantile has been open a few weeks now and business is going to be good.
The mercantile will offer the basic items needed in a grocery, that were sorely missing in downtown Whitesburg, but also customers will have the opportunity to purchase fresh eggs, home canned items and meats from The Old Homeplace Farm. Local growers will also have opportunity to bring their fresh vegetables in for re-sale.
The mercantile also serves as a gathering place for regulars and offers a steady venue for artists, crafters and collectors.
Local artist, Lacy Hale added the crowning touch on the ceiling for artwork on the ceiling, blanketing the mercantile with peace and goodwill.
David and Kae Fisher have worked hard to accomplish this goal and this is just another example of the spark that Grow Appalachia has created in our community.
