Gales Creek – Silver Bells Holiday Shop, located on Salamanca Farms on the edge of downtown Gales Creek has opened for business.
Filled with holiday-themed items, local artwork and crafts and more, the small shop, which owner Brian Yaworsky plans to keep open year-round, opened for business on Friday, October 12.
Step inside, and you’re instantly transported to a winter wonderland – Christmas music plays quietly in the background, decorations, Christmas trees, toys, and more fill the walls, some local, some major brands.
Yaworsky says one customer was excited to see a local shop once again in Gales Creek. “She said ‘it’s nice to go shopping in Gales Creek!’”
With the closure of the Gales Creek Country Store, it’s the only place in downtown Gales Creek to buy goods – and coupled with Salamanca’s farm products sold onsite in a small shed, the two combined come the closest to a grocery store that Gales Creek has until you reach the convenience store located at the Gales Creek Shell station on Highway 6.
The hours of the shop are Tuesday, 2 – 6 p.m., Wednesday – Friday, 12 to 6 p.m., and Saturday 10 – 6 p.m. The shop isn’t opened on Sunday or Monday.
Silver Bells Holiday Shop is located at
9425 NW Gales Creek Rd
