Terry Gillette, Owner/Proprietor of Gillette’s Trading Post, will provide a glimpse into the rough and tumble world of an old-fashioned trading post in the San Luis Valley. After 25 years serving his country, Gillette retired with his wife Carla and decided to move their business to the underserved town and community of Saguache, Colo. 

While the business first opened up in 1996 in Van Meter, Iowa, today you can find Gillette’s Trading Post at 410 8th Street, just off Highway 285 . The pull-off-the-high location is perfect for folks traveling through the valley in need of a wide variety of hunting, fishing, Army surplus, and camping supplies, as well as top-notch gunsmith services. 

From hunting and fishing gear, to military surplus and supplies, stop by Gillette Trading Post for all your outdoor adventure needs. Photo: Saguache Chamber of Commerce.
