The Civilized Explorer Reno Supplies Shopping Page

The ~Civilized<p>Explorer


 

Area Code -- The area code for Reno is 775.

 

For people with a need to buy stuff on the way to Burning Man - either because they flew into Reno or they forgot to stop by Trader Joe's, here are some stores in Reno and Sparks. Also included is information about where to buy water, ice, clothes, camping supplies, and anything else that sounded interesting to us. Reno continues to grow, with most construction in the south part of town along Rt. 395. This area is flush with national chains for stores and restaurants - there is very little worth going out of your way to get to. However, if you are driving in from the south, you've got a lot of businesses adjacent to the freeway, which can be convenient.

 

The second part of this page is Shopping by Freeway Exit, a list of stores at each freeway exit. My thought is that this can be printed out and used to identify one or two exits that will have everything you need. Let me know how this works for you!

 

If you want to know about road construction in Reno, go to the City of Reno's Roadwork page. You can also check out live video of traffic, the mountains in Reno, and Pyramid Lake.

Specific Stores of Burning Man Interest

 

Melting Pot

1049 S. Virginia St 322-9445 - The Melting Pot closes during Burning Man so they can attend. Clearly an enlightened business, stop by if you have time before or after the event. They sell Burning Man tickets, incense, drums, hemp, tie dye, pipes, sarongs, masks, belly dancing apparel, bindis, henna, rugs, and Burning Man books. They moved a few blocks south after Burning Man 2006. From Route 80, take Exit 13 (S. Virginia St.) The store is about 1.5 miles down on the right (half a block north of Vassar). From Route 395, take Exit 65 (Plumb Lane) • west on E. Plumb Lane• right onto S. Kietzke Lane • left onto Vassar • right onto S. Wells. (This trip is just under 2 miles from the Exit.)

This is a phenomenal place - it's huge and has the largest assortment of various surplus stuff I've ever seen. Fire suits, water barrels, gloves, tents, tarps, goggles, parachutes, military lip balm, etc. They have helped supply Burning Man for years and are accustomed to helping Europeans and other folks from outside the US supply their entire camp. This year, they've contributed gear worth $700 to a Reno radio station giveaway for Burning Man. It's almost worth going even if you don't need anything, just to talk to them and other Burners. We've also done our own web page of pictures from the Big Red Barn. To get there from Route 80, take Exit 14 • south on Wells Ave • east (left) on E. 4th St. • it's 8 blocks down on your left.

450 Keystone Ave 323-4998 - From Route 80, take Exit 12 (Keystone Ave.) • go south on Keystone, the store is about a block on your left. This is one of our favorite stores because of it's location - it's close to Simply Water and Crystal Ice Co.

Water

 

Simply Water 411 Keystone Ave. 337-8111 A Burning Man friendly business in the same shopping center as Albertson's at the Keystone Blvd. From Rt 80., take Exit 12, Keystone Ave. • right onto Keystone and it's in the shopping center immediately to the right.

The Water Mart 1249 Baring Blvd 702-358-2500 Sparks (corner of Sparks and Baring - use exit 20 off Route 80, go north 2 miles to Baring Blvd). In the Baring Village Shopping Center, they are open 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, and 10 am to 5 pm Saturday, Sunday and holidays. They will stay open late on request.

Crystal Springs Water Co 1435 Celese Ln 851-1722 I haven't seen this place and it looks a little out of the way, but could be useful if you are doing other shopping near Exit 61 off Rt. 395. After taking Exit 61, go south on S. Virginia • right on Foothill Rd. • left on Celese Circle • right on Celese Lane.

 

Tap Water

Twin City Surplus will fill your water containers. In 2004, they charged $12 to fill a 55 gallon barrel, $7 for 30 gallons, $6 for 20 gallons, and $5 for 15 gallons. To get there from Route 80, take Exit 14 • south on Wells Ave • east (left) on E. 4th St. • it's 8 blocks down on your left. To get there from Route 395, take the Route 80 exit west • Exit 16 (Victorian Ave./E. 4th St.) • right onto E. 4th • west 4 blocks - it's on your right.

Sierra Sid's truck stop at Exit 19 in Sparks (giant sign visible from I-80) has faucets with gate valves, that blast at high volume and fill the containers quickly.

The Pilot Travel Center in Fernley can also be used to fill-up water containers. Fernley is 2 miles north of the exit for Burning Man (Rt.447) off Rt. 80. Take Exit 48. 575-5115

Desert Rose RV Park in Fernley charges $5 for as much tap water as you want (like 450 gallons!) It's 9 miles off Route 80 in Fernley, a small detour. From Route 80, take exit 46, Route 95 Alternate • keep right at the fork, follow signs for Wadsworth/Pyramid Lake and merge onto NV-427/Stock Ln/US-95-ALT • go south on Rt. 95 9 miles and you're there!

I've also heard of one person who fills up at the spigot at the Donner Summit Rest Area on Route 80. It's free, although there could be a line if everyone decides to use this water source!

 

Dry Ice and Ice

Brief instructions for use in cooling and freezing are available.

 

Albertson's, Raley's (89 cents a pound in 2000), Scolari's, and Safeway stores in Reno, Sparks, and Fernley sell dry ice. We have found that many sell out just before Burning Man; the Scolari's in Fernley had dry ice when no other grocery store did. Now we stop at Crystal Ice, they have tons of ice. For people coming from the south, The Water Mart in Sparks may be more convenient. I don't know of any ice companies along Route 395 in Reno.

 

Crystal Ice 1345 W. 4th St. Reno 323-5145 - Conveniently located off the Keystone exit on Rt. 80 • go south on Keystone • right at the 2nd light onto 4th St. • Crystal Ice is on the right just after the Keystone RV Park (about 2 blocks). You can back up to the loading dock - what could be more convenient? They are open 7 days a week; 7 am - 5 pm Mon - Sat and 8 am - 3 pm Sunday. We paid about 90 cents a pound in 2006 - CASH ONLY.

The Water Mart 1249 Baring Blvd 702-358-2500 Sparks (corner of Sparks and Baring - from Rt. 80, take Exit 20, Sparks Blvd. • go north 2 miles to Baring Blvd). In the Baring Village Shopping Center, open 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm Saturday, Sunday and holidays. They will stay open late on request. Baring Village Shopping Center is anchored by a Smith's Supermarket (where you can get Dry Ice).

 

Propane

 

A map of propane suppliers.

 

If you need to get your propane tank refilled, your best bet is Baldini's Sports Casino in Sparks. You can pump your own at their gas station - in July 2005, propane was $1.99 a gallon. 1055 S. Rock Blvd, Sparks 358-7400 From Rt. 80, take Exit 17, Rock Blvd. • go south on S. Rock Blvd. • it's on the right at the intersection with Greg St. (about 0.6 mile from Rt. 80).

10400 S. Virginia 851-4030 - From northbound Route 395, just north of Steamboat is an interchange with Routes 431 and 341 (Mt. Rose Highway & Comstock Highway). About 1/4 mile after that, Route 395 veers to the right while the road that continues straight is S. Virginia - this is Exit 57B. You want to go straight onto S. Virginia, the U-Haul is about 2 miles up the road. To get back to Route 395, continue north on S. Virginia and look for signs.

Amerigas is a good supplier for Burning Man. They are at 720 Glendale Ave in Sparks. 358-5246 From Rt. 80, take Eixt 17, Rock Blvd. • go south on Rock lvd. • go east on Glendale Ave. - it's about 3/4 mile down the road. Other businesses with Amerigas filling stations are:

Home Fabrics & Rugs in the shopping center at Plumb Lane and Kietzke Blvd. 900 E. Plumb Lane 826-4544 - If you need cheap home decor fabric, fake oriental rugs, or foam, this is a great place. The $2 a yard fabric is in back; the selection is good. More expensive fabric is up front, and it's still not too pricey. Open Mon - Sat 10:00 am - 6:30 pm, Sun 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.

Their prices are reasonable, but not as cheap as I've seen at discount fabric stores. But it's still worth a visit for the selection.

Western Wear (Boots, Cowboy Hats and such)

 

There are still real cowboys in Nevada, and some of them shop in Reno. You can find stores that sell stuff from western wedding dresses to stores that have dozens of saddles in stock. Phil got a great cowboy hat in Reno and it was steamed into a perfect fit on the spot. Stop by at least one of these stores and say Howdy! Here is a map of all of 'em.

This place is GREAT, geared toward people who actually ride horses! Owned by Jack and Judy Bassett, their motto is, "Where the cowboys shop" since 1964. Phil got his cowboy hat here, and they've got enough stuff to peruse for an hour or so. Jack said he's been thinking of going to Burning Man, but has a difficult time getting away from the store. They are also the official Cowboy purveyor of the Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive!

General Fun Stuff

 

The Melting Pot closes during Burning Man so they can attend. Clearly an enlightened business, stop by if you have time before or after the event.

Party America sells plastic champagne glasses, wigs, paper cups and plates, and glow sticks, if you find you have an inadequate supply of these items as you are driving past Truckee. It is a little out of the way in that it isn't close to a freeway off-ramp, but when you need a pink wig and champagne glasses, it's one stop shopping! 5925 S. Virginia 800-729-1438 or 825-0825. Open 7 days a week. There are 2 locations:

Chocolate Walrus 1041 S. Virginia St. 825-2267 - The Reno News and Review says this about the store:

 

Despite the name, The Chocolate Walrus isn't so much a chocolate shop as a sex shop with lingerie, fetish gear, vibrators, movies, sex books, games and more. But it also sells chocolate body spreads and makes some distinctive chocolate treats on-site--including a chocolate-and-almond confection intended to resemble fecal matter and a wide variety of chocolate genitalia. I picked out a large, erect, apparently cream-filled and rather graphically overflowing red-headed penis. In a further display of puerile confectioners' humor, the figurative nuts contain literal ones. I bought the candy schlong and the doo-doo dessert for Danielle, but she has not yet, for whatever reason, eaten either. As I was making my purchase, the woman behind the counter told me, "We're working on our Valentine's special, a little chocolate cupid with his little penis hanging out.

Just after that the Comstock Storage building is on the left, they are on the east end of the building.

So Randy started Black Rock Bicycles specializing in playa cruisers for Burning Man. He also rents car racks to transport bikes.

Shopping By Freeway Exit

 

Reno has lots of shopping centers close to the freeways. I've listed the businesses close to each exit, so you can do your shopping with maximum efficiency!

 

Note that Route 80 runs east-west connecting Sparks and Reno. Route 395 runs north-south along Reno and intersects Route 80 between Sparks and Reno. In general, people travelling from California will find Route 80 exits more convenient. Folks travelling from the south will generally find Route 395 exits and Sparks exits off Route 80 more convenient. If you fly into the airport, you'll arrive right at Exit 65 off Route 395 and will be close to almost everything. Be advised that recent growth in the region has been focussed in the sourthern areas along Route 395, so you may end up there even if it is a little out of the way.

Gutterpup, who lives near Reno, says,

 

"Take the exit to Route 395 North (Susanville), merge one lane left (the lane you're in will exit onto Oddie Blvd). Take the North Mc Carren Exit, #70. Go Right. You will see a shopping center on the right with Wal-Mart and Winco Foods. (Glance left... hey, there's Home Depot! Pick up your last minute building supplies!) What could be better, Dry Ice and Building materials on the same street!"

 

These are excellent directions, this shopping center is convenient when travelling east on Route 80. And he means it when he says to merge one lane left!

 

Route 80 - Exit 16, Victorian Ave./E. 4th St.
