Bullion Square shops host grand opening

Express Staff Writer

It’s good to be a kid in the summer. On Saturday, Bullion Square merchants are pulling out the stops with a grand opening celebration. Root beer floats (champagne cocktails for the big kids), face painting, gift certificates and free drawings will be offered to all comers. A barbecue will also be fired up.

With the new Ketchum Burritos restaurant in place, the renovated onetime grocery store space has no more vacancies.

To recognize loyal customers and drum up new business tenants, the complex will have a grand prize drawing of items donated by all nine merchants--L.L. Greens Hardware Store, Blockbuster, KBs, The UPS Store, AmeriTitle, Bungalow, Body Buff, Vintage Gypsy and Big Belly Deli.

AmeriTitle will be selling root beer floats to raise money for Camp Rainbow Gold, a one-week summer camp for children ages 6 to 17 diagnosed with cancer.

KECH radio and KSKI will broadcast live on location from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. KBs and Bungalow plan to donate a percentage of their sales to the Janice Hawkins Memorial Fund. Hawkins was struck by a car and killed at the intersection of Bullion and Main streets last month. The fund is intended to help pay for traffic improvements that will make Hailey more pedestrian friendly.

"We just want everyone to know we’re here and we’re open," said Kimberly Stevens, owner of Bungalow.
