I have searched everywhere for information about Thoreau, but can find no reliable information about what kind of shops are found in this small town. The best I can find is, there may be a Blimpie sandwich restaurant, a post office, and a Family Dollar general store.

Does Thoreau have a bank? Medical clinic? Supermarket? Any other restaurants?

Thanks for the list! I don't know why when I searched, I didn't find these. When I looked in the on-line yellow pages, my searches only showed businesses in the nearest cities, none in Thoreau.

Does anyone know if there is any supermarket with deli, bakery, and dairy products? Or is the only source of groceries the small convenience stores?

Been years since I slowed down for the 40 seconds or so it took to pass through that 'town'. I took a drive to the top of Mt. Powell on the Continental Divide. It's another town that was a victim of the death of Rt. 66 as it was. It looks like you can drive through town on Google maps if this works.

Google Street View shows a 2007 photo of "Red Mountain Deli and Market" but it's hard to tell if it was still in business at that time (or now) since no vehicles are seen. A search on the name only found a "now closed" reference.
