The General Mercantile joins Fashions Night Helena

Posted: Updated:

Located on Last Chance Gulch The General Mercantile has been in Helena for nearly 42 years and was started and is still operated by Ray Domer.

Every aspect of the interior of The Merc is a creation by domer, from the barnyard wood used around the store, the old broad-water hotel beams used at the counter, or the 1930 hotel barstools, The Merc can not be duplicated and definitely is a one of a kind of store. The Merc has been a trendy hangout since the 1970's and has evolved into a destination where your are bound to find locals hanging out everyday.

"Every time I come in here I can spark up a conversation with anybody that I have met at The Merc that just comes in here regularly, I mean we have people that come in here once or twice a day." Carly Garrison says.

Initially starting as a gift shop, The Merc introduced coffee from Domer's love for great coffee and espresso, and now produces some of the best coffee in town. You may have to wait a little longer for your coffee, but it is the unique Astoria espresso machine and the process that is truly an art form that takes time for these specialty drinks.

"The way that we make coffee is completely out of the ordinary, it is all about the process about making coffee, and the machine that we use. We still use the old machines that you use the espresso."

For Fashions Night Helena, The Merc's barista, Indigo, will be handcrafting two special drinks for the occasion. The first is called "The Kiss" a creamy peach ice tea, the other will be a homemade dollop of caramel whip cream with a chocolate infused espresso shot pulled over the top.
