A store for all seasons

PROSSER – Gems, candles, soaps…and a man cave! That’s the dichotomy that is Prosser Mercantile in downtown Prosser at 702 Sixth St. Owner Krista Corbin opened the shop nearly six months ago after having operated a mercantile store in Wallace, Idaho. She operates the store with help from husband Grant Goolsby. The couple call the Tri-Cities home. There are reminders of the store’s Wallace influence, such as a large collection of bicycle memorabilia. “There’s a bike path (in Wallace) and we had a lot of cyclists,” Corbin says. As in Wallace, she says the idea is to operate Prosser Mercantile as a neighborhood general store…everything from candy to car memorabilia. The shop benefits from a corner location with generous street-front window space. The building was previously Himsl Real Estate for about 20 years. Corbin says locals have told her that prior to a real estate office, the corner location housed a variety store. Today it still does in the form of Prosser Mercantile.
