I wonder why people with so much money keep going up, up, up on prices. I remember when their doughnuts were $3.50 a dozen, now $6.50 and pies $1.25 now $2.00 each. I wish if I had their money I'd be more considerate of my customers. Don't they know times are hard.

I wish people would just pay attention to the giant signs telling them about the new entrance. Then when they get stopped at the old entrance, its like they are in denial about what is going on and they sit there for minutes trying to decipher what is going on.

That is why they do have some money and are still in business. Just because their prices have gone up reflect that they are paying more for their labor, raw ingredients, labor, electricity, gas to run their farm equipment, insurance, and everything else that it takes to SUCCESSFULLY run a business today. You're barking up the wrong tree - prices go up. Bought any gasoline, groceries or anything else lately? A loaf of bread dosent cose 5 cents anymore. Of course many people around here would rather sit on their lazy ass-s and complain instead of going out and earning more money or change their ways to help with those rising prices. Just my observation based on many years experience in Fannin Co. and surrounding areas.

Having had billboards on the highway I can guarantee you that no one pays for the signage but the owners and its not cheap. As for their prices going up I can think of very few things that haven't milk, eggs, gas you name it. They are a wonderful family,contribute to the area and we are lucky to have them in Blue ridge.

Yeah - Merciers is one of the POSITIVE stories to come out of the area. I find it so funny how certain people in the Fannin area love to knock people or businesses that are finding success, and contributing to the economy in a POSITIVE way and helping make good things happen as far as the area goes. Take your bitching somewhere else. Hopefully there will be more success stories like Merciers in the years to come - it's good for everyone in the area.

This is not a billboard. It is the same kind of road sign used to identify state parks!

They are a big tourist attraction in the area and the tourist pay what they are charging.
Try going to any donut shop to buy a dozen for $3.50...not happening.
The way to protest higher prices is simply by not buying the products, you will see how fast prices come down. However, that seems not to be the case here.
So, good for them!

Even if it is not a billboard and paid by county they pay their share in taxes you can bet on that!!!! I also know for a fact they do so much for the community and are truly kind people.

Maybe they should pay their employees in that two-time winner Blue Ridge Best Chilli. I wonder if that's how they pay the mexicans with chilli and fritters?

What valuable skill sets do the employees have that deserves being paid more than minimum wage? If you can't explain that one, then quit your bitching or go back and get some more education that qualifies you for higher pay because you know something or can do something the average Fannin County yahoo cannot. Answer is Simple. Otherwise, any other employer will pay you no more than they absolutely have to, nor should they. Running a business is not running a charity. You keep your costs as low as possible to be successful. Costs include labor.
