About "the Merc"

Nearly 20 years ago, an editor noted that we are “… not the West Ashley Mercury, not the Peninsula Mercury, not the James Island Mercury…” To this day, we remain a publication for the entire Lowcountry. We send each month’s print edition to fifty fine neighborhoods in our area and to subscribers in to 34 states.  For thousands of Charleston Mercury readers, we continue the mission as he simply stated it — “to bring attention to what makes the real Lowcountry tick.” We hope all those who care about our arts, culture, outdoors, quality of life and all that "pluff mud magic" that We People love so dear will enjoy these "salmon sheets."
