Working at merc hall

We don't hire just anyone...

(because we're in the business of making dreams come true...)

Bon Bon Belle Bridal and Mercantile Hall were founded by Wendy Lynch, a Burlington resident + fan (#smalltownlove). Regarding the little picture there, if you've ever seen the music video by Blind Melon for their song "No Rain" you understand when you hear Wendy's husband Andrew talk about how she found her bees. They have become the unintended symbol of our company's culture.

Wendy has always been an avid team builder. And she's been doing it since she was 20 years old as one of Nordstrom's youngest Managers. Hiring, developing and managing teams, ranging from just a few to as many as 90 people, has been a part of Wendy's career for over 2 decades. After working for powerhouse service companies like Nords & The Walt Disney Company where customer experience & service are paramount, Wendy wanted to take all that she learned to create a culture that attracted positive, can-do people + passionate about giving great service. Each person on both teams (at Mercantile Hall & Bon Bon Belle) is hand selected based on their attitude & ability to serve, and from there, they are trained on all things related to the business. Wendy relays to her team that "you cannot teach a friendship mentality nor what it means to have a servant's heart. Those have to come from deep within or the experience we have with our customers is just an unmemorable moment in time, and no one (including us) wants to spend our days that way..."

Hence the bee-like culture. Each person on the team is in a role that they love - from sales to artistic visual design to finance to event creation. Because of this, each person is enjoying their days which creates a pretty incredible place to visit, shop, and work at every day.
