Clues

This box is called the ‘What To Do When It’s Winter’ letterbox. The clues when solved will lead you to a Missoula establishment in four words (5, 5, 2, 7 letters).
I have broken up the business’s name into seven phonetic parts, all hidden within the following tale. I have hidden one word per sentence in the order in which they appear in the store’s name. When read together, you’ll get the final name of the place.
For example, the following story produces the name of a large business:
The running man missed the wall in front of him. He hit it full on, barely mumbling “Mmm..” before falling down. A passerby watching the incident muttered, “I can’t believe they call this art!”
If you take the “wall” in the first sentence, the “Mmm” in the second, and the “art” in the third, you can phonetically create Wal-Mart.
Now do the same below:

“Look at it whirl,” said Odysseus.
“Well, duh,” replied a sailor, “it’s a whirlpool.”
The sailors all thought the same - that Odysseus believed this adventure to be a game. They hadn’t sailed out here in some metallic SUV but in a boat of wood and nails. The oracle had seen a vision of an invincible chariot, or SUV, driven by a man with long hair who said, “Hey, mon,” but neither the chariot nor the man had been seen.
Odysseus stretched out on the deck to get a tan. As the ship approached the whirlpool, the sailors, confounded by their leader, could only utter “Uhhh...”

Once you have it, go to this place. Ask the counter person, “Do you have any monkeys on the moon?” If he or she says ‘yes,’ you’re in the right place. If not, all I can say is I’m sorry.
Continue and ask, “Are there any I can see?” At this moment, you’ll be lead or pointed to the hiding place (top left compartment). Once there, look carefully and you’ll find a letterbox!
