About Us

Established in 1976, we are a family owned and operated business spanning three generations. We began as a hardware store, and in 1985 we became Foothill Mercantile where we have something for everyone- toys, puzzles, stuffed animals, candy, gifts, housewares, greeting cards, holiday items, and much more! We feel very lucky to have been a part of this community for so long- many of our customers came in as children, we watched them grow up, and they now bring in their own children. We have become a destination for tourists and locals for the nostalgic, old fashioned feeling to the store, an amazing inventory of 23,000 items, and the convenience of being a one-stop gift shop: find a card, find a gift, and we will wrap it for you!
