According to a note just received from Flannery Coats, the Polebridge Mercantile will close for the season on November 27th.
Until then, they’ve still “got hot coffee, baked goods, holiday gifts and good cheer.” They are open seven days a week, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The “Merc” reopens next year on May 1st.
Flannery Coats & Stuart Reiswig are the “caretakers” of the Merc. For those of you not familiar with the whole North Fork thing, here’s their capsule description: “The Merc has been serving the North Fork community for 100 years. It serves as a general store, bakery, base camp and vacation getaway.” The Merc has pride of place right in the center of Polebridge at 265 Polebridge Loop Road. The phone number is 406-888-5105.
