New business upstairs at Food Ranch
A new store in Orangeville upstairs at the Food Ranch is offering jewelry and Native American items. The store is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from noon-6 p.m.
Terry Lofthouse is the owner and the craftsman on many of the items. He said he also buys items from Native Americans to sell in his store.
"I am starting a tour guide service too. We offer different packages for different areas in our county, the San Rafael Swell and Goblin Valley and also a package that includes Cove Fort and one for Nine Mile Canyon. We would like to get the word out on Emery County and encourage visitors to come here. We want visitors from out of the country to come here and see what we have to offer.
"We are putting together some package deals that include food, lodging and travel. An entire package would also include pick-up at the airport. We also do day trips and day packages, we have one that includes golf at Millsite golf course.
"In our new store we have a lot of items that I've made. As an electrician, I've had bits and pieces of copper wire stored and started fashioning them into art. We have necklaces, trinkets, woven baskets and many items to decorate homes or to be used for gifts. We have a variety of earrings and necklaces," said Lofthouse.
The Emery County Business Chamber hosted a ribbon cutting for the new business called Old Utah Trails Outpost and welcomed Lofthouse to the Emery County business community. The business chamber encourages everyone to shop locally and come in and see what this new store has to offer.
