Triple Seven Treasures, a Carson City store offering vintage and collectible items, plans a grand opening in early August featuring Lorne Greene memorabilia for display only.
The Aug. 2-5 opening event will include Greene’s Colt 45 revolver from his days acting as patriarch of the Cartwright clan on the “Bonanza” television show, plus Greene’s awards, jewelry, pictures, signed books and more; however, they won’t be among the inventory for sale.
The Lorne Greene display will be from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. those four grand opening days at the 1800 E. William St. outlet, but store hours are longer each day.
The 2,000-square-foot outlet in Suite 2 at that address is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and offers items from throughout Nevada, including collectibles, home decor and vintage items.
The family-operated limited-liability company’s principals include Charles Smith and Corina and Ashley Ackerman, according to Corina Ackerman, who added the store opened July 13.
The Lorne Greene estate items were provided for display during the grand opening by an anonymous Carson City resident; the family business hopes to display them at different times on three or four occasions each year.
“We’ve been open for 11 days,” Corina Ackerman said last week. “We’re doing pretty good.”
Greene, named Lyon Chaim Greene when he was born in Canada, became a broadcaster and later an actor. His best-known TV roles were in “Bonanza” and “Battlestar Galactica.” He died of pneumonia at 72 in California.
