Building Relationships... Realizing Dreams for 25 Years

   Linda Barron left Vietnam on June 26, 1970 for a new life in the U.S. with her 2-month-old daughter, Loan, and her husband Ken Anderson. She thought Los Angeles was a dream world. Everything was so bright and full of lights. She slept through the night for the first time. In Vietnam, the nights were full of noises including gunfire, exploding grenades and distant cannons that would light up the sky like fireworks. The United States was a strange land to her and she felt like a baby trying to learn the new ways of life.

   By 1985 Linda's family moved to Trinidad to fulfill her dreams with her two children, Loan and Lynn. The family bought an empty building now known as Mountain Liquor-General Store and Linda's Alterations. Unknown new adventures were ahead of them. With hard work, determination and Linda's background as a seamstress, she now celebrates her 25th year as a family-owned business. Linda would like to thank the community of Trinidad/Las Animas County, her many friends and family for their continued support. "We are here to serve you and hope to continue to serve you for many years to come. Even though I spent my youth in war-torn Vietnam, they say that Home is where the heart is and my heart is in Trinidad/Las Animas County, Colorado."

   Stop by for ice cold beer, wine and spirits, tackle, live bait, lures, fishing and hunting licenses, and all your sewing needs. Liquor store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and the tackle shop and Linda's Alterations hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. They are located at 1144 Robinson Avenue 1 mile west of Trinidad on Highway 12.
