Biz Buzz: Sept. 24, 2017
Real estate franchise Coldwell Banker has moved downtown, taking over the second and third floor of the ANB Bank building, 131 N. Sixth St.
Coldwell moved into the newly remodeled building in mid-August and had a grand opening celebration Sept. 14. The company previously had its office at 2499 U.S. Highway 6&50.
“The energy that is becoming the downtown area is something we wanted to capitalize on,” Managing Director Keith Everitt said. “We wanted to take a huge leap forward to modernize offices for agents to better serve their clients.”
Everitt said ANB Bank did a great job remodeling the building. Coldwell Banker finished the second and third floors before moving in. The second floor has residential agents while the third has commercial and corporate offices.
Everitt also said the previous building was dated and it was difficult to make changes. Now, the office is up to 21st century standards. The design for the second and third floor incorporates ideas from offices all over the country that Everitt said were appealing.
“It’s incredible, the energy,” he said. “It’s an open concept for a lot of the area. The synergy between the agents is incredible.”
The location has about 120 employees in the office.
■ Grand Junction’s newest chiropractic office will soon be seeing patients after Renew Chiropractic celebrates its grand opening Oct. 5.
Leah Rezin and Jeff Midgley will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. and host a gathering of food, fun and networking opportunities at their location at 2648 Patterson Road.
Rezin and Midgley practice neurologically based chiropractic care that focuses on restoring communication between the brain and the body by taking pressure off the nervous system to allow the body to function properly.
The two are graduates of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, and Midgley originally hails from the Grand Valley.
“We’re excited to celebrate with everybody and we’d love to be able to show people what we’ve been working on,” Rezin said.
Rezin and Midgley are taking inquires for appointments. For information, call 628-4481 or visit renewjunction.com.
■ The former West Gate Inn is now officially a Red Roof Inn after the sign was recently installed. The hotel, 2210 U.S. Highway 6&50, had been in the midst of renovations that were needed to become a Red Roof Inn. The hotel had been open since the early 1980s. It will not, however, include a red roof as that was not required for the change to take place.
Renovations are ongoing in the last portion of the hotel and should finish soon.
Another change at the hotel is the restaurant, which was formerly Otto’s Restaurant. That location closed Dec. 30 and reopened March 20 as Roosters, a privately owned restaurant in Grand Junction.
■ Grand Valley Edward Jones branch offices are supporting the Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies by donating goods from customers Oct. 1-31.

Monetary donations are not accepted.
