Mercer Street in Princeton has been a hot topic of conversation recently as businesses settle in in the Grassroots District.
“It’s a really exciting time right now and there are all these wonderful people that are in the neighborhood now doing all these wonderful things. There’s a variety of new businesses and a family can come down various times of the week and have a whole evening on the town. It’s really exciting and fulfilling to watch it all unfold,” said Lori McKinney, Owner of Riff Raff.
Hammer & Stain and Let Your Art Shine are just two out of many businesses on Mercer Street that have several events a week aimed at bringing the community together.
Kristen Lewis, owner of Let Your Art Shine says all of the businesses along Mercer Street help each other out as much as possible. Today at her Paint-A-Story event, Bucha Brewhouse and Bistro provided cookies for the children!
In February when Hammer & Stain host their couples night for Valentine’s Day, Let Your Art Shine will open their doors to all of the children for a night of partying and art.
Hammer & Stain focused on teachers last night for Teacher Appreciation Night. Hannah Price, who attended the event said, “I feel appreciated especially because my mom has been a teacher for over 30 years and I appreciate my mom. I have past teachers that were here and I appreciate them because I really believe that my mom and one of my teachers that was here has changed me to who I am today.”
