GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) On Friday afternoon, the Legends of the Grand Valley Committee revealed it's latest sculpture project.

The brand new sculpture depicts the founders of City Market, the Prinster brothers.

Descendants of each of the four brothers were on hand for the ceremony.

"They'd be blown away, that's all I can say," says Tony Prinster, grandson of one of the founders. "I don't think they'd have a concept that this type of accolade would be placed on them."

Tony's book, 'The Brothers Four and The Black Slope Empire,' was available after the ceremony for a donation to the Legends of the Grand Valley - sculpture project.

The brothers are considered to be the catalyst in changing the way groceries were distributed throughout Western Colorado.
