95 Days of the Grand Avenue Bridge Closure and Detour

Free Delivery Up the Roaring Fork Valley on Weekdays

BRIDGE CLOSURE: The Grand Avenue Bridge closure and detour started August 14th. The impending closure of the Grand Avenue Bridge has gotten me thinking about community. Community is defined as a group of people having common interests. We all have a common interest in getting through the bridge closure with a minimum of hassle and frustration.

The prospect of spending 95 days dealing with this situation is daunting, but I am confident that everyone will find their own way to navigate through the detour at the appropriate time. At times other than during rush hour, we expect that any delays will be minimal.

COMMUNITY: We are proud to be a part of the Glenwood Springs community for the past 39 years. Your support has helped to make us successful. It has also allowed us to give back to a wide variety of charitable organizations and to serve on local boards dedicated to improving our community.

As the bridge closure is an unprecedented situation, it is extremely difficult to plan for. With tremendous support from our suppliers, we plan to maintain a wide selection of products from the best brands as we have always done. I am asking for your support through the detour. Please come in and shop Summit Canyon when it is convenient (and maybe sometimes when it’s a little inconvenient).

FREE DELIVERY: In case you can’t make it to us during the detour, we will be offering free delivery up the Roaring Fork Valley to any location including Aspen on weekdays during the entire bridge closure. Delivery only applies to locations south of the Colorado River.

SERVICE: Simply call us at (970) 945-6994 or email me at: carl@summitcanyon.com before 3 pm and we will deliver your purchase to you that same day. Payment must be arranged before delivery. If you are home when we deliver, we will even wait for you try on or try out your purchases and we will take it back if it doesn’t suit you. You can’t get that kind of service shopping on the internet! As a reminder, we match prices with any authorized dealer, including internet dealers.
