Park City High School Class of 2020 yard signs are welcome sights on graduating students’ front years throughout our town. In light of the disruption of their senior year, this was a heartwarming way for high school staff to recognize them. Not only does this demonstrate Park City’s remarkable sense of community, but it serves as a reminder that we still have several occasions we need to find ways to celebrate, even in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to graduations, there are birthdays, anniversaries, and Mother’s Day coming up on May 10th. While Park City store fronts are closed due to the Summit County Stay at Home order, many are still offering online shopping or shopping by phone. Some even deliver gifts. There is no excuse to skip the gift giving this spring, and you can do so while supporting our local businesses!
J.W. Allen & Sons Toys & Candy
Park City’s only authentic toy store is located at Redstone in Kimball Junction. They are accepting phone orders at 435.575.8697. If you have a child’s birthday coming up, they have an incredible amount of inventory of games and toys to make any kid’s day!
Splendor Beauty Emporium
Park City’s headquarters for cosmetics and beauty gifts, Splendor is a favorite for local women. Owner Delilah delights customers with her passion for high-quality beauty brands like Laura Mercier, and she is now making more products available for purchase online. Locally made make up bags are a fun gift as are affordably priced fashion jewelry items. Since you can’t visit the spa at this time, check out Splendor’s home spa items. And then there are the timely Quarantine Survival Kit items – who couldn’t us a bit of help in that department?
Indulge in some spring style for children and babies by shopping for high-quality clothing on Minnows’ website. The Redstone clothing boutique for little ones offers fun styles that make great gifts for your own kids or someone else’s! Check them out for baby showers, newborn gifts, and birthday gifts. If you’re an expecting mom, you can also create a registry on their website.
Small, independent bookstores have been a dying breed for many years, but not in Park City. Dolly’s Bookstore has been a Main Street staple since 1972, offering books, greeting cards, and unique gift items. Many people are cooking more than ever and experimenting with new recipes, so a cookbook would likely make a welcome gift these days. Shop online or by phone, Monday -Friday. 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The store is offering curbside pick-up as well as inexpensive local shipping.
