If you are new to the Boulder, Colorado area, then it’s time to become acquainted with some of the local businesses in the area. For starters, let’s review some of the public transportation points. The Regional Transportation District is the city bus service. There are also car rental shops like Avis, Hertz and Enterprise. There are just as many bicycle rental shops as there are for cars, so expect to find University Bicycles on Pearl Street and Full Cycle near the school.

If you have a medical condition then it’s important to learn where the local pharmacy is located. The Medical Center Pharmacy inside the Boulder Medical Center is found on North Broadway. King Soopers Supermarket on 30th Street in the Sunrise Plaza also has a pharmacy. Pharmacies are opened seven days a week during daytime hours.

For shopping, look for the Pearl Street Mall and Twenty Ninth Street. These outdoor pedestrian malls not only have new stores but also street entertainers, eateries and brand name retail outlets. The FlatIron Crossing is not in Boulder, but just nine miles away.

Some local businesses for artsy shopping include Art Source International, Barnes and Noble, Beat Book Shop and Word is Out. Weekends is found on Pearl Street and offers new fashion for men and women. Whole Foods is an organic food store chain and El Loro is a bohemian jewelry shop.

Local shops from Boulder are near the Lyons downtown area, which is right on road 36 to the Rocky Mountains. Here you can find local businesses like the Oskar Blues Grill and Brew on Main Street. This decorated establishment features food, beer and an eclectic music selection, from blues to rock to rockabilly. The Lyons Pinball Arcade features 30 pinball machines, many of which are retro-fabulous 1970s creations.

Newcomers to Boulder should make it a point to see the many local businesses and meet the working staff. Mom and pop shops often have the best deals, so leave no store corner unturned!
