US Hwy 395 Exit #60, South Meadows Pkwy
If you turn west (left if you are traveling north, right if going south) off US-395 and go one block to South Virginia Street, on your right you will find one of the cheapest places for bulk groceries buying. WinCo Foods. Grab a cart and your shopping list. But be prepared. WinCo Foods only takes cash, checks, and debit cards. No on credit cards.
You can also access Sierra RV/Truck Rental on Virginia Street, on your left just north of WinCo Foods. For more information, see the US395 and S. Virginia Exit #61 hub.
If you turn left going south back onto Virginia Street, a few stores down the road will interest you. Ben’s Fine Wines & Spirits, Indian Smoke Shop, and Faster Care (for quick medical needs).
Instead of turning west off the freeway, you may want to turn east to find some other shopping standards at South Meadows Parkway and Double R Blvd. Smith’s Food and Drug and a new sushi restaurant, Keva Juice, and some other fast-food options and other businesses in the area.
In need of some EMERGENCY MEDICAL attention? Renown Regional Medical Center is right next to the freeway, on the east side of US-395 on Double R Blvd (see below).
