New business: Carhartt franchise locates in Kremmling Mercantile
November 6, 2008
Carhartt franchise owner Linda Hill and manager Linda Mahon have moved their clothing line to the Kremmling Mercantile.
It was formerly located at the Sportsman Quik Stop in Kremmling, before the Quick Stop closed.
Hill said the Mercantile provides convenience to Kremmling shoppers.
“It’s just a good work wear,” she said. “It’s so cold up there and it lasts forever ” it’s just a good line of clothing.”
Some of the items offered include: coats, socks, children’s clothing, men’s shirts, jeans, bib overalls, hunting clothes, hats and gloves. A women’s line will be offered in the future. Catalogs are available at the store, and people can place orders from it.
People interested in having their Christmas orders in before the holiday should order the first week of December, she said.
Hill opened the branch in 2003 and moved to Olathe two years ago, where she also owns a Carhartt franchise shop. Mahon works and manages the shop in Kremmling.
“I’ve heard from a lot of people that they’re glad we’re back,” Mahon said.
She visits the store three to four times a week to straighten and clean the shelves.
The Carhartt clothing is located at the front of the store. “We’ve done really well since we moved in here,” she said, adding that the location provides “one-stop shopping” for Kremmling residents.
It’s all reasonably priced, she said.
“We put the minimum price that Carhartt will let us put on (apparel),” Mahon added. “You’re getting a good value for the money. Carhartt is a trusted brand name.”
For orders customers can call Hill at (970) 323-6885; or Mahon at (970) 724-3507.
