Since 1917, U.G. White Mercantile has been an institution in Northern Alabama. Our general store was started by a farmer for farmers, and since then, has grown to offer quality goods, fair prices and impeccable service to a growing clientele of cotton mill workers, business folk, homesteaders, candy-lovers, coffee drinkers, honey tasters, back packers, pickle pickers and everyone in between.
In 2015, U.G. White Mercantile opened its newest location in downtown Huntsville, Alabama. Situated one block north of the courthouse square, the new location offers the same time-honored brands and local flavor as the original Athens location, but with a little more shelf space. And yes, you can still get your candy fix by the pound!
