Fox Mercantile filling a need for quality work clothes and boots


The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting at Fox Mercantile located at 73 W. Palmer Street next to Ace Hardware. The new store offers work boots, workwear, cowboy and cowgirl boots, scrubs and so much more.

“The idea for the store came about from a passion to keep America working and an opportunity to fill a void in the local market,” said Nick Potts, owner. “Since People’s Department Store closed, there hasn’t been a place to get quality work boots and workwear. Upon doing some research, we decided to open a store to sell not only those items but also scrubs and footwear to go with the outfits. We have a unique blend of goods that, until recently, people had to leave Franklin to get.”
