This May, a new boutique in Waynesville is giving back to the community. Main Street Mercantile Gifts and Accessories, located at 101 S. Main St., has pledged to donate 10 percent of its May sales to REACH of Haywood County, a local nonprofit that aids survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse.

As a kick-off to the month-long event, Mercantile hosted an in-store reception at 10 a.m. Monday, May 2. Members of the community, REACH staff, volunteers and supporters came out to enjoy complimentary coffee, pastries and shop in the boutique.

This unique opportunity comes at a great time for shoppers, as they get ready for Mother’s Day and spring graduations. The store offers jewelry, accessories, bath and body, gifts, and a variety of other items.

REACH staff and volunteers gather to kick-off the May promotion at Main Street Mercantile.

Visitors to the store will find a warm reception by owners Jose Gonzalez and Gabe Munoz along with a wide array of gift items perfect for the upcoming Mother’s Day and Graduation gift giving occasions.

“Jose and Gabe have been so generous to offer this promotion on REACH’s behalf. Although they are new to Waynesville, they are clearly enthusiastic about giving back to the community, so we’d love for the community to come out and return that support,” said Anna Denson of REACH.

“As Winston Churchill once said, ‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’  We are so excited to be partnering with REACH of Haywood County, they are an amazing organization!” said Jose Gonzalez.
