Take in a bit of nostalgia with some shopping at U.G. White Mercantile, located on the square in historic downtown Athens. For nearly a century U.G. White Mercantile has served Athens and surrounding communities with quality goods and impeccable customer service. In the early days, farmers, cotton mill workers and businessmen alike purchased horse drawn plows, cast iron skillets and everything in between.
Having passed from four family generations to the current owners, U.G. White continues to operate on the square in historic downtown Athens as an authentic general store offering specialty products and small town service.
Hours are Monday-Wednesday, 9am to 6pm, and Thursday-Saturday, 9am to 8pm.
