Merchant Quarters is a modern general store offering functional, quality and inspired goods, fashioned after the early general store of the 1800’s. Those early stores were actually the homes or quarters of farming families. Usually a room would be filled offering everything from horse harnesses to chewing tobacco, from flannel shirts to cheddar cheese - in short, almost anything not produced on the farm.
Well . . .we have done away with the harnesses and tobacco but we do still have the flannel shirts and cheese and added everything from Birkenstocks to Ray Bans!
As much as possible we sell products produced here in B.C. by local artisans and makers and we seek out companies who are socially responsible with a mindful and fair trade philosophy.
