Whether you need a quick snack, lunch on the go, a simply delicious dinner, or a unique and memorable gift, we're here for you!

COVID-19 Update

Like countless others, we are doing all we can to appropriately and effectively respond to the ever-evolving situation associated with COVID-19:

  • We are being more vigilant than ever to keep our space clean, with particular attention to all frequently-touched surfaces. We also have hand sanitizer and tissues available for your use at our checkout.

  • We have discontinued all in-store sampling.

  • We have turned off the signature requirement on Square, eliminating the need for anyone other than staff to touch the iPad at the end of a credit card transaction.

  • We all are practicing social distancing, being ever mindful of the 6' safety zone.

  • We're providing local delivery and curbside pickup. Give us a call (540-319-4180) or send us an email (contact@oldlexmercantile.com) to let us know what you'd like and we'll take care of the rest.

We're continuing to work as hard as we can to keep our selection of prepared food well-stocked. We appreciate your patience as we face the unexpected challenge of sourcing basic and essential ingredients, such as chicken, flour, and black beans. We're hopeful these bumps in the supply chain will smooth out in the weeks ahead.

Obviously, we're all dealing with a very fluid situation. If circumstances warrant any changes on our end, we will let you know as soon as we can. In the meantime, please let us know how we can help you. We're all in this together. We appreciate your support and whatever you can do to help all of our local businesses during this very uncertain time.
