In the Spotlight - Leon River Mercantile


This week the Chamber will be featuring Leon River Mercantile for our In The Spotlight guest.  Leon River is owned and operated by Jesse and Misty Bolgiano, both of who now reside in Gatesville.  Jesse and Misty, along with their two children, moved to Gatesville in 2013 when they purchased Leon River Mercantile.  Before their purchase Leon River had been a set fixture in the Gatesville community for 19 years. Jesse, Misty, and the crew from Leon River Mercantile recently celebrated their 20th anniversary.  Leon River Mercantile carries a wide variety of merchandise from men's, women's, and children's clothing, boots, and belts.  Some of the more known brands being boy's Under Armour, women's Sperry and Miss Me, and men's, women's and children's Silver, Grace, Rock n Roll Cowboy, and Cowgirl Tough.  They also have on hand thousands of pairs of boots to choose from in basically any size, with brands such as Ariat, Justin, and Twisted X.  Not only does Leon River Mercantile carry boots and clothes they also have home decor, gifts, candles, frames, and jewelry such as; Gypsy Soule, Montana, and Vogt. Another added bonus is that Leon River Mercantile now shapes and cleans all cowboy hats.  Leon River Mercantile is a great start when you are wanting to shop local for Christmas this year, join them on Friday December 12 for their Annual Midnight Madness sale; where they will give away a pair of boots every hour from 8-12 pm (must be present to win).  Stop by and see Jesse, Misty, and the crew at Leon River Mercantile "The biggest little western store in Texas!"  Leon River Mercantile, 1512 E Main Gatesville. 254-865-1372
