For convenient shopping in a pleasant atmosphere in stores with a wide selection of goods at economical prices Crestone residents and visitors generally shop in Alamosa and Salida, both about 50 miles away. Alamosa has Safeway; a Kroger store, City Market; and Walmart. There is also a natural foods cooperative. Salida has Safeway and Walmart. Online shopping and fast convenient delivery are available through Amazon and Walmart.

For tires and batteries Jim's Tire Store in Alamosa is a good local dealer. Extremely competent and friendly. Jim`s Tire Store, 711 1/2 State Ave., Alamosa, CO 81101 (719) 589-9690 Closed Saturday and Sunday. Jim's is an Interstate Battery dealer.

There are a few stores in Crestone. It is possible to avoid travel to nearby towns for shopping for months at a time with only slight inconvenience and only a small increase in expense. Winter travel in the San Luis Valley is sometimes quite dangerous due to cold, ice, and occasional blizzards.

There are liquor stores with a pleasant atmosphere and a good selection in Alamosa and Salida.
