The GearSPOT (138 East Main Street) in the Lyons Village Central Plaza is celebrating their grand opening/ribbon cutting on Friday, March 22, from 3 to 6 p.m. Proprietor Lisa Ruoff invites the community to come on in, check out the outdoor sporting gear, and enjoy some munchies and refreshment.
Ruoff, who moved here from Carbondale late last year, had spent most of her adult life owning and operating restaurants in the Roaring Fork Valley. An avid outdoor enthusiast, she was surprised that there weren’t many places to get quality used outdoor gear in the general vicinity, and decided to fill the niche. She explains, “We’re happy to be a part of the
