Nettie’s Mercantile & Café Grand Opening


New date and time to be announced soon

Nettie’s Mercantile & Café opens to the public soon. This venue is a “coming together” of Rockford Rescue Mission’s Remade Store and Restoration Café, in the former café’s location at 625 West State Street. The name Nettie was chosen to honor the Mother of Rockford Rescue Mission’s co-founder and Executive Director, Rev. G.O. Pitney.

Nettie’s Mercantile and Café offers a delectable eatery, unique shopping and so much more.  Where else can you savor a cup of coffee, enjoy freshly baked muffin or cookie, find a gift…and change a life? Most of the furniture and décor is created or repurposed by individuals rebuilding their lives through our Life Recovery programs along with Mission staff and volunteers.  All Nettie’s Mercantile proceeds benefit Rockford Rescue Mission programs.
