Frequently Asked Questions
What's so special about Refill Mercantile?
Great question! We support small sustainable brands from across the United States and have a passion for eliminating single use plastic from our daily lives in the most convenient ways. We research and test all of our products. Oh, and the "we" we refer to is a wife and husband duo that strive to be the best stewards of the land we can be in order to hand down this beautiful world to our grandchildren in the best possible way as well as help you do the same!

Do you have a charging station or bicycle rack available?
We don't currently have a charging station in our parking lot but there is a station inside the Keller Street Parking Garage just a block and a half away. We have an outside bicycle rack or feel free to park inside the Mill just out front of our shop. We also have a bike repair kit in case you need it!
Do you deliver?
Yes! We currently deliver on Saturdays and Sundays to Sonoma County. Check out our Shipping Details page for all the info!
Do you have curbside pickup?
Absolutely! Purchase online and select local pickup during checkout. We will put your order together and email you when it is ready for pickup! Refills will be placed in either a community jar or compostable paper bag.
What are community jars?
We have a cart with clean, used jars for anyone to use for free! Take a jar, leave a jar! Please only scent free, clean jars with lids. We take them home and run them through the dishwasher just to be safe. We also have compostable labels of all of the bulk products to place on the jar or free compostable paper bags.
Where do you ship?
Currently, we are only shipping to the United States. We'll announce if that changes!
Do you ship using plastic??
Nope! Our clear tape is made from cellulose and the kraft tape has zero plastic in it. We save packaging we receive from orders and reuse everything we can! Plastic-free shipping forever!
