If you’re seeking a full day of retail therapy, the Outlets at Silverthorne (downhill from Dillon) will prove to be your ultimate destination. But that doesn’t mean shopping in Dillon is non-existent. In particular, Dillon stores cater to the daily utility from which successful vacations are built. When you’ve arrived in town only to realize you’ve forgotten your phone charger, toothpaste or food and toys for Fido, you can find exactly what you need in Dillon shops and then some. Dillon retailers occupy only a few primary locations: along Route 9 (north of the Outlets), off of La Bonte Street and Lake Dillon Drive (known collectively as La Riva Del Lago Shoppes) and within the Dillon Ridge Shopping Center, which is home to the county’s largest Kroger-affiliated grocer (named City Market in these parts). A huge attraction in summer, The Dillon Farmer’s Market offers fresh meals, meat and produce from regional producers, alongside crafts and jewelry from local artisans and funky clothing.
Dillon Shopping: Thrifty Treasures
Among mountain resorts, great finds are available in the least expected places with Dillon shopping. People move here with a goal to ski daily and realize they brought too much stuff, so their bad planning brings you some amazing finds. One thrift store in Dillon stocks jewelry, fashion, antiques and more. Down the road in Silverthorne, Habitat for Humanity offers great second-hand furnishings and appliances, among other household goods.
