Sidney Mineral World and Scratch Patch re-opening in Sidney


A local business and popular attraction in Sidney is back after a short hiatus, which saw its doors close almost two years ago.

Pebbles and the Scratch Patch at Mineral World sold off all of its merchandise and closed the attraction on Sept. 30, 2014, after more than 20 years in business.

It was owned by Sidney Waterfront Partnership at the time, the same company that owns the Sidney Pier. They made the decision to close the attraction after it had been operating at a loss for some time.  Sandy Baynton, is now the new owner and also owns Waterlily and Provenance in Sidney.

Sidney Mineral World and Scratch Patch will re-open this Friday, July 15. The summer hours are 9:30 am to 8 pm, every day!
