Bringing an abundance of joy to families’ homes across Newnan and Coweta county is something that Rachel Kuehl is proud to have accomplished. In 2017 she started Newnan Mercantile in downtown Newnan. Within just two years, Newnan Mercantile has outgrown its former space at 15 North Court Square. On March 23rd the shop opened its new location at 11 Greenville Street.
Owner Rachel tells us, “This store has been an amazing opportunity to serve this community and provide for my family at the same time. It’s a place where I get to bring my kids to work with me and watch them grow up. I’ve met so many amazing people — locals, travelers, and cancer patients. I’m so blessed that God gave me an opportunity to be a part of this community. We have continued to grow faster than expected, so when the opportunity to move into a larger space that would showcase our product so much better to our customers, we jumped! We have listened to our customers about what they want and what we can provide, and this new store has helped us transition to provide that.”
With the move Newnan Mercantile has started to carry more furniture pieces along with larger decor items. Rachel elaborates,” The more we get settled in, the more we will find and bring into the store. The new store is spacious and just downright pretty!”
Joy is certainly what Newnan Mercantile brings to those who shop in the store. Rachel enjoys building lasting relationships and friendships. She says, “I look forward to seeing what sparks each person. It’s exciting to see different styles, tastes, and ideas.”
Since its opening day, Newnan Mercantile has been able to host numerous fundraisers, gather items for disaster relief efforts, donate to the Childrens Connect Museum as well as to many silent auctions benefiting various organizations in Coweta County. “In the next year we hope to partner with Foundation Christian Church on a shoe project for children,” Rachels says. ”We have a lot of goals, and without the support of our online and local community achieving them wouldn’t be possible. We love Newnan!”
The love for Newnan will shine bright during a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, April 6th. Rachel calls it a “PAR-TEA!” The day will feature many giveaways, including a $100 gift card, no purchase necessary. A decor basket raffle and goody bags for customers are in the giveaway lineup, too. “You can expect mimosas and donuts for breakfast, along with an ice cream truck, signature tea, snacks, cheesecakes, and cookies while enjoying 15% off your purchase. Saturday is going to be awesome,” she exclaims.
Rachel and her entire team at Newnan Mercantile are excited to meet you! The new shop is now open at 11 Greenville Street in downtown Newnan.
