We’re so happy you’re here!
We are Lori & Brian, a husband & wife dynamic duo
& the owners of The Grove Mercantile!
We are constantly striving to create new and delicious flavors of ice cream, as well as curating a wide range of unique gifts for both our local community and tourists alike...
Lori always had dreams of opening up a small retail boutique, but the timing never seemed quite right. When we discovered the town of Groveland a few years ago, everything about the quaint mountain community at the gateway to Yosemite National Park reminded us of a Hallmark movie, and we knew we had found the right place to open up shop.
The only question that remained was how to draw people into a beautiful retail shop just off the main highway?
That’s when we decided that what Groveland truly needed was not only retail store, but a high quality, hand-crafted ice cream shop!
Although some people thought we were crazy to blend these two ideas into one store, we knew our vision could work seamlessly!

WE AIM TO SERVE
ONE SCOOP AT A TIME.
HOW DOES ONE MEASURE HAPPINESS, JOY, OR A SIMPLE
“I FEEL GOOD WHEN I’M HERE”?
So we started brainstorming and decided we wanted to aim to please the five senses:
-Things That Are Visually Pleasing To The Eye
We are motivated by kindness, happiness, community, and being able to offer treats & gifts that we are proud of!
We aim to offer high-quality products, the best handcrafted ice cream, friendly staff, and not settling for the status quo.
