The Cooper Vortex

DB Cooper was here - Bryan Woodruff

December 4, 2018

Bryan Woodruff is the owner of The Ariel Store in Ariel, Washington. The Ariel Store hosted the annual DB Cooper Days celebration from the 70's to 2015 when his mother Dona passed away. The county and state took away the store's business and liquor licenses when she died, and Bryan is working on a plan to get The Ariel Store open again. Bryan has an incredible collection of DB Cooper memorabilia, books, and even letters. 


Be sure to visit the Facebook page for Dona's Ariel Store Pub.
