Regardless of your religious beliefs, I am sure we can agree that people in this world are thirsty for love. My Shoppes and Southern Merc teams make it part of our mission every day to be kind to people and show them love. I am not going to lie to you and tell you that this is always an easy task when you work in the customer service field. It is not. Just try to remember that everyone you meet has struggles, everyone you meet is going through something and everyone is worthy of love. Everyone. This is a lesson I am still learning daily.
If you want to help others, but you are just not sure how to take the first step, we’re making it easy for you! We need you to help us do for many. We love loving people, but we can’t do it without you, our faithful customers!
If you are in our area, come in and see us! Do a little shopping, have lunch, and know that you are helping to make a difference in this community. You are empowering us with the ability to continue to working with DFACS, Ruth’s Cottage and Called to Care BHIB. Join our Shoppes email list or check the Shoppes Facebook page regularly so you can stay in the loop of what’s going on with these organizations and what we are doing to help!
If you are a part of our online community, know that every purchase you make, every blog post you comment on, and every Facebook post you share helps support spreading the Love of Jesus in our tiny southern town. We also support makers who give to their own ministries, so you know you are purchasing with purpose when you shop with The Southern Mercantile!
Southern hospitality at its core is serving others. So much of what we focus on at The Southern Mercantile is sharing southern hospitality. We want to make sure that we are serving as many as we can and meeting as many needs as we can, as we spread the love of Jesus and raise awareness regarding the needs of others. If you aren’t already, we hope you’ll join forces with us in reaching our community by being a part of The Shoppes / Southern Mercantile Family!
