About Ute Plaza
The Ute Tribe’s Ute Plaza Supermarket was established on October 28, 1998, with funds from the tribe’s Water Settlement Fund (Section 506 of Title V of P.L. 102-575 “Indian Rights Settlement). The store continued on until major renovations were done to the store in 2011, using Revitalization Funds. Further interior improvements were completed in 2017, to highlight the Ute Culture and to update the store’s overall appearance including display cases, lighting, flooring, and equipment. Today, the store contains the Ute Bison Café and Deli, the Ute Crossing Trading Post, and True Value Hardware Section. It’s Meat Department features Premium Ute Bison, and its Produce Department boasts the Basin’s finest Organic Vegetable Section. The Ute Tribe owns the Supermarket and Ute tribal members are the stockholders. The store is managed by the economic development arm of the tribe, Ute Tribal Enterprises, LLC.
