A new Beacon shines in Dillon

Office supplies. Computer supplies. FedEx shipping services. Art supplies. Copying resources. Help with graphic design. And the occasional jigsaw puzzle.

Just about everybody needs one or the other, at some time or another. And many of us need at least one or two of them, just about every week.

Dillonites gained a downtown location to access all those goods and services last week with the opening of Beacon Business Center, at 34 N. Idaho St.

“We’ve been trying to get over here for awhile—it just finally worked out in the right location,” said Brian Curtis, who co-owns Beacon Business Center with his wife, Tanya.

“We’ve been operating a store in Sheridan for about eight years and I’ve had requests to do this over here for awhile from people in Dillon and from my suppliers,” said Curtis, who has lived in Sheridan for 15 years.

“We’re pretty excited to be part of the Dillon business community. We’ve gotten a good reception from our neighboring businesses who are happy to see us here and to be able to walk in and have easy access to a wide range of office supplies and computer supplies.”

Curtis said Beacon’s product line will grow wider in the coming months as customers offer their feedback.

“We’re waiting to hear from our customers—as we find out what other products and services people need, we’ll begin offering those as well,” added Curtis, who has been driving his son and daughter to Dillon for years for dance and fiddle lessons.

Customers can use Beacon products for their art, craft and printing projects on-site at Beacon’s project center, located in the rear of the store.

For those looking to gain some help and a more professional look for their projects, Beacon offers the services of graphic designer Jordan Allhands, who will spend half her time in Sheridan and half in Dillon.
