Supercuts, located at 2740 U.S. Highway 50 in the Shoppes at Orchard Mesa, is celebrating five years in Grand Junction this month.
The salon is locally owned and operated by Supercuts franchisee Justin Seely.
“Supercuts has been a part of the Grand Junction business community since opening in 2009. We have continually hired local staff and stylists. All of them are proud to have been cutting and coloring hair with us,” Seely said.
There are two Supercuts in Grand Junction, both owned by Seely, and more than 2,300 Supercuts across the country, spokeswoman Elizabeth Pavlica said.
Nationwide, specially trained stylists cut more than 33 million heads of hair a year. In Grand Junction, services include adult, children and senior haircuts, as well as styling, hair coloring and facial waxing, Pavlica said.
■ Because of some “great volunteers,” the Downtown Business Improvement District is finished stuffing all 3,000 Farmers’ Market bags, district spokeswoman Diane Keliher said.
The bags, stuffed with coupons, discounts and similar swag, will be given out to patrons who visit the open air market downtown this summer, Keliher said.
“Thanks to representatives from Big O Tires, Pretzelmaker, Haggle of Vendors Emporium, Grand Junction Therapies, Main Paige, Colorado Baby, Tangle, Pollux Clothing Co., Crystal Books and Gifts, A Gift of Hands Massage Therapy, Adagio Dance Academy, and the DDA (Downtown Development Authority) for helping out,” she said.
■ Bozarth Chevrolet sponsored its annual Summer Car Show on Saturday to benefit St. Mary’s Regional Cancer Center. After the show, Bozarth hosted a “Main Street Cruise” that started about 8 p.m. That explains the influx of people and cars on Main Street that night. Last year, there were 96 entries into the show, a Bozarth spokeswoman said.
■ The boards governing the Downtown Development Authority and Business Improvement District voted recently in support of making Colorado National Monument a national park. The deadline is Monday for the public to make concerns about the proposal known to U.S. Sen. Mark Udall and U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton. BID urged local residents to contact their federal representatives to voice their opinions. Comments are being taken by Mark Udall at mark udall.senate.gov and by Scott Tipton at tipton.house.gov.
“Please take time to send a few short sentences sharing your thoughts about park status. Your time and assistance are greatly appreciated.” BID spokeswoman Diane Keliher said.
■ Two Rivers Center for Spiritual Living is “excited and grateful” to be celebrating one year at 251 Colorado Ave.
“We invite you to visit our dynamic and growing spiritual community, where we welcome all people with dignity and love,” a center spokeswoman said in a news release.
Upcoming events include Zumba Gold starting July 10, Oneness Blessing (Deeksha) on July 14, and Diversity Dialogue/Training on July 26. Call 970-433-7799 for information.
