Merchant's Mrkt is a brand new collaborative retail store in Lyndhurst, OH at Legacy Village Mall. There are products from over 20 local vendors from Cleveland and the surrounding area. This new store brings a fresh retail experience to Legacy Village along with unique structure to the way the shop is organized. Most shops that specialize in local or handmade goods sell the products on a consignment basis, or purchase the goods from makers and vendors, then resell them to consumers. These shops give customers a wide variety of goods, and typically have each vendor's products placed around the store to give it a cohesive feel to fit the store's brand. Merchant's Mrkt gives each vendor the opportunity to show off their own brand in their own unique way.
The vendors all share the costs associated with the retail space, and as a result, get to keep 100% of the proceeds for their sales. By sharing the risk, these small, local vendors get a chance to sell their goods along with national brands such as Crate & Barrel, Francesca's, L.L. Bean, and Pier One.
Each vendor gets their own space inside the store with complete control over what they sell, and how their product is displayed. The shop has been curated to avoid any overlapping products among the vendors. In a way, Merchant's Mrkt is a tiny mall, inside of the mall, where you can walk around and experience an eclectic mix of all kinds of great products.
