ABOUT THE STORE

A FUNKY URBAN GENERAL STORE

The Merchant–Purveyor of Local Goods–is nestled in the eclectic Central Arts District in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. We fuse the modernity of a well-lived urban lifestyle with the charm and nostalgia of an old fashioned general store. Our ever-changing assortment of gifts and wares promotes the creative community of artists, craftsmen, and makers in St. Pete. 

CORPORATE GIFTING

At The Merchant, we believe in supporting local and that includes your business! We want to give corporations the opportunity to get their brand recognized by their target audiences. We customize your corporate gifts to help you spread your message in the most giving way.

FOOD TOURS

Soon, The Merchant will offer tours of downtown St. Pete. Choose from our illustrious private tours to our group celebrations, we will have an option to suit your preference. We plan to launch our food tours program in 2020. Stay tuned!
