Monument shop to open in Fruita
The Colorado National Monument Association will open a gift shop in the Museum of Western Colorado’s Dinosaur Journey in Fruita on Monday.
The association normally operates the shop in the Colorado National Monument visitor center. The monument, however, is closed by the federal shutdown, so the association sought out a temporary home.
The association will have a booth at the ICON Lasik Tour of the Moon event on Saturday, using a wireless credit-card machine on loan from Alpine Bank, Executive Director Linda Spinner said, noting that the association also might be able to arrange a soft opening on Sunday at Dinosaur Journey, 550 Jurassic Court.
