No need to wonder any longer where you can drop off that pre-paid UPS shipment. The UPS Store in Gillette is open!
"The UPS Store is separate from UPS," says owner Troy Castleberry. "Obviously we work together and are under the same parent company, but UPS Store has its own CEO and corporate offices."
The UPS Store is more of a retail business, and the Castleberry family has opened a franchise location in Camel Plaza to better serve Gillette. They keep regular business hours -- Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. -- and have a full staff that can assist you whether you're ready to ship or still need help prepping a package.
In addition to standard packaging and shipping services, The UPS Store offers full print services, laminating, self-service color copiers available, full-service mailboxes, shredding services, notary republic, and promotional product development.
"If you're shipping to a post office box, the only people that can deliver to those boxes are the post office. So you can't have UPS or FedEx stuff shipped to your P.O. Box," says Troy. "Here, it's any actual street address mailbox, so any carrier can deliver to us, and we'll keep your stuff safe."
You can visit them at 900 Camel Drive, or give them a call at (307) 682-7581.

Lezlie Kinsinger broke the news to her husband: she was going to commandeer his hunting camper to build a mystery room.
Two months later, she was ready to launch 307 Mysteries.
“I started this because I wanted to do something in Gillette for adults, kids, families and businesses,” says Lezlie. “Everyone always complains that there’s nothing to do here, so, now you don’t have to go out of town.”
Lezlie creates all the puzzles in the rooms she creates herself, and has a range of different “mysteries” to solve – some as short as 10 minutes – to keep things fresh and interesting for people. She has tried to make the experience affordable, so that guests will come back more than once.
“I also want to stay portable so I can go places, take this trailer out to events,” Lezlie says of the her largest mystery room, which can be redesigned and changed easily. She took her escape room trailer out to Donkey Creek Festival this year and had nearly 300 attendees challenge themselves to solve a puzzle.
Larger groups are harder to accommodate, says Kinsinger, because not everyone gets a chance to participate. Groups of 7 or 8 people are ideal, and if they get stuck, she can help out. 307 Mysteries doesn’t combine people who don’t know one another, so if you can find five or six friends, call them and then call 307 Mysteries to make an appointment.
Just recently 10 corporate teams, including Security State Bank and Medicap Pharmacy, competed against each other. New Life Church won the challenge, and donated their winnings to Blessings in a Backpack.
“I just wanted to do something for the community I grew up in, and have fun!”
If you’d like to try an escape room at 307 Mysteries, or have them come to your event, give them a call at (307) 567-0063. They are located on Highway 14/16.

In 2016, Campbell County Health realized that many of their patient rooms were too small, awkward, and limited when it came to accommodating equipment, providers and families. Providers at Campbell County Memorial Hospital toured several other hospitals to see what worked for them, and what they would liked to have done better. A remodel of CCMH began in 2018 with that input, and this week, a new maternal health wing -- Phase I of a project that will be completed next year -- was unveiled.
"I've worked in other places where new units were built. This work team, comprised of staff, was actively involved in planning [the remodel]," says Director of Maternal Child, Josephine LeMaster. "That's huge. You don't see that elsewhere."
Based on projections, there are now less rooms than before, but they will better serve the patients that will stay there. There are now eight "LDRPs," where a patient can go in to labor, deliver, recover, receive postpartum care, and then be discharged, all from the same room. There are also three postpartum rooms, four flex space rooms where surgery can be performed (with more being built.) A pneumatic tube system will quickly transport samples and medications back and forth between the unit and the pharmacies and labs.
The new patient rooms will create a functionally effective work space and flow, and is estimated to serve CCMH for the next 40 to 50 years. The OB section will officially be finished the end of July, with Medical/Surgical and Intensive Care units to be completed next.
