ˈmərkənˌtēl,ˈmərkənˌtīl/: noun. a general store. “we walked to the local mercantile”
The old mercantiles from many years ago carried a variety of items for the settlers…from basic necessities to the frivolous. Though years have passed and times have changed, Mackenzie Creek’s “modern mercantile” still holds to the mercantile tradition- offering a wide variety of items for the shopper to choose from.
Mackenzie Creek carries; Clothing & Coats for Women & Men (casual, sporty, outdoor and upscale), Outdoor Gear & Accessories (including outdoor shoes, hiking and snow boots, camping and hiking essentials, knives, flashlights, maps, bug spray, sunscreen and…), Slippers & Moccasins, Accessories (including sunglasses, socks, gloves, purses, wallets and belts), LazyOne Sleepwear for the whole family, Kid’s Corner (including trinkets, toys, hats, sisters logo t-shirts, socks and baby clothes), Sisters Logo Wear, Unique Gifts (including jewelry, candles, soaps, redneck beverage glasses, jam, yard art, and many items handcrafted by local artisans), SOOOO MANY HATS (for the whole family- we’ve even got Kentucky Derby hats for the ladies!)
Just a few of the major brands you’ll find at Mackenzie Creek are; Columbia Sportswear, Minnetonka, Acorn, Sherpani, Lazy One, Hi-Tec, Dorfman-Pacific, Basic Options, Black Crater (locally made in Sisters, OR), Fits, Kershaw and Weatherproof.
There is so much to see at MCM, and much of the stock changes with the seasons- You really need to come on by to see it all!
It definitely IS worth a drive to Sisters, not just to stop by the Mercantile (we hope you do!), but to take a little time and visit all the wonderful shops Sisters has to offer- makes for a great afternoon!
