Shelvin’ Shelvin’ Shelvin’ by Ree

IMG_4526As I explained in this post a couple of weeks ago, we recently bought the old Alco store in our town. It closed down last year and we are using it as a warehouse for the Mercantile, as well as a shipping center for the Merc’s online store.

It was Marlboro Man’s idea! It’s all Marlboro Man’s fault!

But man…it’s turned out to be great. It turns out that we never would have had enough storage space in the Merc for all the goods we have coming, and we never would have been able to build a warehouse for the price we got Alco for.

That Marlboro Man causes the best kind of trouble.

 

 

IMG_4532Over the weekend, the shelves for the warehouse went in. We bought a bunch of used warehouse shelving, and it doesn’t all match…but life is too short to match!

 

 

IMG_4534We had a small army of helpers, including Hayden and Marshall, who are friends of Alex’s and are home from college this summer.

IMG_4561It’s fun to think about where this shelving has come from. I did see some liquor labels here and there, which makes me feel dangerous and edgy.

Or not.

Here’s a video of the shelves all coming together! It was super speedy. Ha.
