Downtown stores

Just a heads up for future tourists. If you are driving through and stopping there just to look through the stores, they do not open until 10am. So plan the drive accordingly. When we were there on 8/9 we, along with many other tourists, had to wait for them to open.

Yes, like most other places in the United States, about the only things open before 10am are restaurants that serve breakfast, coffee shops, dry cleaners and banks. That and the Home Depot etc. depending on where you live in the sprawl. With exceptions, most retail stores open between 10am and 11am depending on the day of the week. That goes for small town stores, suburban malls, high end shops on Rodeo Drive and on 5th Ave. in NYC, and everything in between.

Thankfully, by typing the name of most retail establishments into google (along w/ city, state, country, province...), you can find the exact hours of businesses anywhere in the world, so nobody ever has to wonder if something will be open as they're passing through.

Most of the shops and stores in small, mountain towns are operated by the owners. Opening at 10am isn't that strange in the world of stores and especially for people that work their own stores. When would they have time for banking or getting kids to school etc? The majority of shoppers in Silverton are train passengers, with the first train arriving around 11am. At least there are beautiful views, photo opportunities and relaxing in Silverton. I love the morning in the high mountains. How was the rest of your trip?
