Living on a holiday island, residents of the Cayman Islands can indulge in the joys of vacation nearly all year-round.
And the Mercantile – the new-look boutique at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort – has captured the essence of this joie de vivre in its unique design.
“The name and design of the Mercantile was inspired by the general stores of yesteryear,” says Rachel Belton, the resort’s director of spa and retail. “We loved its old-world connotations and thought it was a fun fit for this one-of-a-kind retail space.”
Design elements include a “changing tent”, bicycles on the wall and products made on the island.
