Scout's General

A new store in an old house, Scout's General is a year-round festival of the senses.  We are proud to offer a beautifully curated collection of goods with an emphasis on local, handmade, and one-of-a-kind.  We serve artisanal foods to go that are grown and prepared by families and other small businesses just like ours.  You'll find cold drinks, coffee, healthy snacks, and fun treats to fuel your Crested Butte adventures. There's something for every person and every budget.
