    Ruby's Inn General Store: Ruby's Inn General Store

    by goingsolo Written Dec 19, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ruby's Inn General Store has just about everything for exploring Bryce. The rear of the store has an extensive grocery selection for camping or in room dining, clothes are available (at a steep markup) for anyone who forgot essential gear and, of course, souveniers and mementos of your Bryce Canyon stay can also be purchased here.

    One thing neither the store nor the gas station across the street sell are cigaretters. If you're a smoker, you'll want to make sure you purchase cigarettes in advance or you'll be driving for quite a while and paying quite a bit for a pack of smokes.

    Old Bryce Canyon Shops: a hokey little cowtown

    by richiecdisc Updated Jun 27, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    a little piece of the Ole West

    This is a little hokey re-created cowboy town but after a days of hiking, it's a fun enough place to walk around, window shop, or have an ice cream. Even though it's not authentic you somehow expect it should be. Come on, you want it to be and if you use your imagination it can be.

    What to buy: They have all kinds of junk from rare stones to Indian jewelry and moccasins. We didn't buy anything and my guess is it might be a bit over priced but hey, you're paying for the atmosphere. We were just soaking it in.

    Ruby's General Store: One stop shopping

    by kazander Written May 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now as much as I dumped on Ruby's in my restaurant tips, I will give them kudos for a very convenient general store. We bought the making of breakfast (as you know returning to their buffet was out of the question) and some snacks for the remainder of our journey throughout Utah.

    What to buy: They have a great selection of things, if you are camping, have a room with a kitchenette, or even if you just want snacks for the bus ride. We bought Water, Juice, Milk for cereal and coffee, cereals in single serving containers, yogurts, cookies....I think that's it. At the adjoining gift shop we found some good items as well.

    NOne specific: Ruby's Has a String of Shops

    Row of retail shops at Ruby's

    Ruby's has a series of shops that have candy, rocks, Indian items, petrified wood slbs ($3,000-9,000 costs), glassware, trinkets of all kinds, etc, etc. Strange as it may sound, Ruby, named after the founder here, became an incorporated town and has population of 150 people just in a little area where the shops are located. They then can control what to have to show and support infrastructure.

    What to buy: Anything your little heart desires-they have all the tourist type stuff and then some more. Besides all that, there is a dinner show called Ebenezer, a grocery, gas, and all the other needs. Nearly everything is overpriced due to the monopoly they have in the area. Tourists flock to it, though.

    The art is on consignment, and it it a collection that the proprietor, Irene Brockdorff has accumulated from local artists. The paintings are of high quality, and the sculptures well done with the personal touch of a special art person.

    What to buy: Anything you feel you can afford and like

    Ruby's Inn Gift Shop: One of the best

    by Segolily Written Sep 13, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ruby's Inn can be busy and seem a bit tacky. But take a look inside the gift shop and you find excellent native crafts. Rugs, baskets, pottery, and jewelry are top quality.

    There are plenty of other more typical things to buy as well, but if you are looking for something nice this is a good place.

    Bryce Canyon National Park

    Old Town is located across the street from Ruby's Inn, just outside the park. This is a very kitschy set of shops with different kinds of souveneirs, including rocks and cowboy hats.

    Old Town is open in the summer only, from May through October.

    Ruby's General Store: Plenty to choose from...

    by vichatherly Updated Jul 1, 2011

    Ruby's General Store is a huge place and you can't really miss it when visiting Bryce Canyon City.

    It's open all hours, 07:00 to 22:30.

    I has all the supplies that you need to enjoy a great time in Bryce Canyon National Park. Stock up on drinks and nuts for the days hike or just browse amongst the host of gift ideas for the loved ones back home.

    What to buy: Actually the place ain't half that bad. The gifts can be a bit cheesy, but some of them are ok. There is a wide range of prices and so I'm sure that if you haven't got yoursel a keepsake from the area yet you will have no problem finding one here.

    We bought some moose pyjamas!

    Rubys Inn has a pretty large General Store. The store has many souvenir items. It also has groceries, one hour photo, and its own post office. It is great for anyone staying at Ruby's Inn.

    What to buy: Western Souvernirs

    What to pay: More than a department store or discount supermarket. The prices were reasonable though.
