Visit the Historic Deer Creek Mercantile
The Deer Creek Mercantile is a 6,000 sq. ft. store located in Deer Creek, Oklahoma USA! The Deer Creek Mercantile was first established in 1899 in a wood structure building. By 1905, the Mercantile was looking to expand so they built the grand 6,000 sq. ft. brick store front in which you can come shop at to this day. The Mercantile just went through an incredible restoration so it can live on for another 100+ years. We hope that you can come & check out our store. We carry a variety of goods from clothing to housewares, foods, gifts, & more. We can't wait to see you soon!
