New businesses breathe new life into west end of Grand Junction
Business owners hope two new popular editions to the West end of town will bring in more shoppers and a higher profile.

    Nice point about the annex... If you don't like driving to shop, then move!! Its your choice where you live!!

    I would love to see some attention on the east side as well, but am actually just hoping City Market doesn't close the store out here and leave US hanging like they did all the people within the city limits.

    These "new business" do nothing to improve our local economy. They simply serve to recirculate existing dollars while goverment siphons off its share with taxes. In fact a large portion of the revenues these types of business gather are exported to pay for supplies and franchise fees. What we need is industry that brings new money into the valley from outside our borders. Manufacturing, increased oil and gas development are the types of business that improve our local economy and create jobs with middle income wages.

    When can we get some businesses attracted to the east side. I hate driving the 5 miles to shop, buy hardware, or clothing.

    While the city and business focus on the west end, they have completely ignored the east end. 20th Street east on into Fruitvale is deteriorating and no new businesses of significance are planned. The increasing number of vacant buildings have become indicative of the city and chamber of commerce's lack of concern for this blighted area. City services in this area have become shoved to the back burner. Was this because residents voted not to be annexed?
