We've Got the Goods to Get You There!
Time was, U. G. White Mercantile was the only dry goods and general provisions store for miles around. Hardworking farmers and their families traveled into Athens and expect shelves stocked with everything they needed and maybe a little of what made life fun and sweet. From plows to penny candy it became our a philosophy that earned us the motto “we’ve got the goods to get you there.” And it’s a tradition everyone at U. G. White is proud to continue to this day.
Pickled and preserved
Bread-and-butter pickles may not be our bread-and-butter just yet. But the way these locally produced pickles and preserves are flying off the shelves, it won’t be long before they are. Explore our large selection of southern-produced pickles, preserves, sauces, marinades, jams, jellies, cobblers and so much more. Help support our local farmers while enjoying a jar of something special from U.G. White.
