Does this mean that Glacier Point road will also open this weekend?

I've never seen them send workers up the trail... And how else would they stock....?

It probably does mean that Glacier Point Road will be open for all traffic, though in theory NPS could just have the road open for administrative personnel, including DNC employees, and keep it close for the general public.

And the trail traffic would justify opening the shop? I find that hard to believe nowadays. There's been plenty of car traffic going through Crane, but the store is apparently opening just this weekend... I feel like DNC would want ample shopping traffic... But hey, not my area of expertise... Will keep an eye out!

This just in:

Glacier Point Gift Shop was mistakenly included in the seasonal opening list and will NOT be opening this Friday, March 27th. We apologize for the confusion.

Yes, that was incorrect because it's opening on SATURDAY, MARCH 28TH (not Friday, March 27th).

The confusion regarding Glacier Point road opening continues. This was just posted on the YARTS facebook page:
"Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park to Open Tomorrow, Saturday, March 28, 2015
The Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park will open for the season to automobile traffic tomorrow, Saturday, March 28, 2015, at 6:00 a.m. All visitor services at Glacier Point will be fully operational. The Bridalveil Creek Campground will open within the next several weeks.
Visitors are urged to drive slowly and with caution, as wildlife may be present on or near the roadway.
The Tioga Road, the popular east-west crossing of the Sierra Nevada in the northern portion of Yosemite, remains closed at this time. Currently, there is no anticipated opening date for the Tioga Road.
For up to date, 24 hour road and weather information, please call 209-372-0200.
