Price Mine switches location in Craig
The Price Mine Service office moved from their location on East U.S. Highway 40 to 316 West Victory Way for the sake of more space and a better location.
A larger basement helps with training and there is also more office space in the upstairs part of their new building, Max Ciali, regional manager for the Craig office said.
Price Mine Services provides staffing services for underground and surface coalmines.
The downtown location also helps with walk-ins, Ciali said.
In their last location, Price Mine Services had two offices for the number of safety and environmental groups they work with. The new space has seven offices and Ciali said this is very helpful to the groups who work with Price Mine.
Price Mine Services can be reached at 970-824-4300.
Stacks Smokehouse’s business heats up fast
One new establishment in Craig is really cooking.
Stacks Smokehouse, 351 S. Ranney St., hosted its grand opening Feb. 20 and in its first week of business has seen an enormous turnout for those looking for a new eatery, or rather, meatery.
The former site of Double Barrel Steakhouse features a menu with lots of beef, and the biggest hit so far has been the ribeye meal, said owner Steve Fulton.
“We’ve barely been able to keep it in stock,” he said.
A variety of salmon dishes — pan-seared, grilled and honey ginger glaze salmon salad — have also been well-received, as has a surf and turf plate with steak stuffed with baby shrimp.
“It’s just delicious,” Fulton said.
Fulton’s aim is to keep the food served at the restaurant as fresh as possible with Colorado meat, and he also plans to work with local gardeners to bring their wares to the table.
For more information on Stacks Smokehouse, call 970-701-3312.
