Always open, even when it's closed

On my typical commute to and from downtown, I pass by good ole Mer-Mer's Bakery on the north end of Gay Street, right past 5th. First I'd like to comment on the name... but considering I don't really know what to say about a name like Mer-Mer's, I'll just bring attention to it.

Secondly, I'd like to know what, exactly, the owner is trying to suggest by constantly being open and closed at the same time. More often than not, their neon "open" sign is glowing while their closed sign is hanging on the door. It's so confusing, so baffling, and I love it.

I swear to you one time, I think it was on a Friday around 11:30 a.m. maybe two or three months ago, Mer-Mer's was open/open. I should have marked the day down on my calendar and celebrated it like a holiday.

i've often passed by and have been deceived by the "open" sign late at night. mer needs to post her hours. i wanted some baked goods.

Mer Mer's is so good - it is named after Mercedes, the Owner's daughter. By the way, Remedy Coffee in the Old City gets fresh deliveries of baked goods from Mer Mer's every morning!

Mer Mer's is FANTASTIC! And the owner is a sweetheart. She aslo has a great story - you can read about it in the store!
