I remember, Ralph and Ruby mercer Very well, As `a boy Growing up in Clarenville, Ralph and Ruby , were a very Humble couple , through their good times and Their not so good Times, Phillip was a few years younger then Myself and if I remember correctly my Sister Sandra would babysit for Him on Occasion. The whole family always treated me with respect, even when I would interupt their evening Meal when I would knock on their front Door ,(as the Store was closed at that Hour) to purchase a pack of smokes or mostly an Oldport Cigar to smoke while I walked to Aircadets on a Friday night. . i will alwasy have great respect for The mercer family, Whenever I would come home on Visits while I was in the Army Both Ruby and Ralph always had good words to say to me and say how good it was to see me. and even when I was home a couple of years ago to purchase a retirement Home in Old Bonaventure, I visited Phillip in His store, it took Him awhile to place me but when he did we had a good chat , and as always was very glad to see me.

Love Mercers as does my family. My husband Garry can't wait to go to Mercers when we come home to visit. My daughter Meghan loves it too...all that sports equipment. It's a little piece of home. Thanks

I love this story! This is a lesson in faith, hard work and community spirit. Mercer's Store is by far one of the nicest stores I have ever visited. I have never had a bad experience there. The staff are excellent. They know the products, they are friendly and helpful. I could spend a whole day there just browsing over the abundant stock of everything you can name. And I know a lot of others who will agree with me.
