Mercantile on Morris has added another jewel to its retail space downtown with the addition of Hide & Hunter, a Magic City based handcrafted, upcycle leather goods brand.
Hide & Hunter
If Hide & Hunter sounds familiar, you might recall seeing the classy leather goods retailer featured at Rev Birmingham’s Upswing pop-up event downtown back in October 2019.
“Mercantile on Morris is the perfect fit for Hide & Hunter’s first brick & mortar location. Hide & Hunter really flourished at Upswing, so we’re very excited to see the business thrive at Mercantile on Morris.”Caroline Jenkins, Orchestra Partners
Using shipping containers, Upswing was a first of its kind demonstration project designed by REV Birmingham to showcase and improve downtown Birmingham’s retail scene. With the establishment of Hide & Hunter downtown, it looks like the experiment worked!
“At REV, we’ve seen time and again how powerful pop ups can be in proving business models and proving markets. We are thrilled that Upswing on 2nd served as such a springboard for Hide & Hunter to open her first brick-and-mortar location at Mercantile on Morris. Her success is Birmingham’s success.”Taylor Clark Jacobson, REV Birmingham Director of Business Recruitment and Growth
