Lifelyles will join Cannella Gelato, Pizza Grace, Bridge + Root, and Scott Miller Projects in the mixed-used development. This is the first location for Lifelyles.

The boutique retail store will sell gifts and interiors. The store focuses on creating beautiful spaces while incorporating old with the new. Lifelyles has a focus on providing products that are environmentally safe, ranging from home décor, and gifts, to daily essentials, and more.

“I chose Mercantile on Morris for Lifelyles because of the location and the revitalization happening in downtown. I am happy to see there is life being poured back into downtown Birmingham. With this being my first brick and mortar shop, I wanted to curate a space that I could make my own.”
