Des Moines Mercantile opening in Highland Park

Oak Park/Highland Park Business District welcomes a new general store, Des Moines Mercantile! 

Mallory Richardson hopes customers of her new Highland Park shop, Des Moines Mercantile, will feel like they’ve taken a step back in time.

The “modern-day general store” will be filled with artisan-made products such as nonperishable foods, brooms and blankets, all with a nod toward the sell-all stores of years gone by.

“Something at the foundation of our vision is stuff inspired by the past,” said Richardson, owner of the store at 3707 Sixth Ave. in Des Moines.
