GROCERY STORES

Whether you are staying up at Mt. Crested Butte, Crested Butte or down in Gunnison, we have full service grocery stores that are there for your shopping needs.  Needing a pharmacy?  There are two major chains down in Gunnison that are there for your prescription needs. Our two health food stores are great for visitors with dietary restrictions (and a great place to pick up a tasty lunch, too). Don’t expect to find a wide beer, wine, or liquor store in a grocery store though. You’ll have to head to a liquor store for that.

Our local home and kitchen stores have everything from furniture and homegoods to kitchen and glassware. Many specialize in Southwestern Styles, but other styles are available, too.
