Yesterday, Tuesday the 3rd of March, was the official start of the plastic bag ban in the town of Telluride. The ban on single use plastic bags is part of a wider objective to reduce waste in town and to encourage shoppers to carry reusable bags. From now onwards, shoppers face a 10 cent fee for paper bags in stores, or they can purchase reusable bags for 99 cents at Clark’s Market.

We would like to make all of our Telluride Rental’s guests aware of this ban, so you are prepared for these changes when you visit the grocery store, or other stores in town. It is a town ordinance that retailers must charge shoppers for paper bags.

Don’t have time to do grocery shopping when you arrive? Or do you want your fridge fully stocked upon arrival??

One of the many services that Telluride Rentals offers to guests is a grocery stocking service, through our partnerships with Telluride Delivers & Mountain Air Concierge. Telluride Rentals liaises closely with both of these companies, and we can arrange to have someone else take care of the grocery shopping for you.

Some of our private homes, Stonegate and Castlewood, have a grocery shopping service included in the price. The guest pays the cost of the actual groceries, but send us a list, and the shopping will be done for you as an added service.
