BizBuzz, Aug. 7
Jerry and Eleni Sica, owners of Crossroads Wine & Spirits, 611 24 Road, announced last week they are closing the doors of their store for good after more than 10 years in business.
“Yes, it’s true. We’re closing our doors and moving on to the next great adventure,” the couple said in a posting on the store’s Facebook page. “On the bright side though, you will get some unheard of deals if you come in today.”
The store is advertising its going-out-of-business sales via social media, including Facebook and Twitter and by sending out emails to loyal customers.
“So sorry to hear that you are closing,” Rachael Hale, a former employee, wrote in a message posted to the store’s Facebook page. “I loved both shops and I loved working for you both. When I am in Colorado I will have to pop (in) and check out your new adventure. Wishing you both the best.”
The Sicas also operate a fine food emporium.
■ Car lovers who use detail service should be glad to hear ColorAuto Carwash and Detail Shop, 2486 Commerce Blvd., is now open in Grand Junction, owner Paul Heckman said.
In addition to the basic hand wash, ColorAuto includes standard interior and exterior detailing, professional Carnauba wax, scratch removal and sanding, black plastic restoration, paintless dent repair, headlight restoration and oxidation removal, Heckman said.
Large bay areas accommodate any oversized vehicle or boat. Specialized hydraulic lifts make motorcycle undercarriage detailing easy, he said.
“Opening ColorAuto is a dream come true,” Heckman said. “I always loved working with cars and the way a car feels when it is freshly detailed.
Heckman said he will “treat your car like my own, nitpick every detail and refuse to cut corners.”
The shop also offers pickup and delivery services, a convenience for people with busy lifestyles.
“It is just one more way we can show our customers we are deserving of their trust and that we respect their schedules,” Heckman said.

■ Junction West RV Park, 793 22 Road, announced Monday it has joined the Cruise Inn brand of RV parks and campgrounds.
Launched in November 2013 and backed by more than 125 years of overall hospitality expertise, Cruise Inn is “the most exciting development to hit the outdoor hospitality industry in years,” park co-owner Tom Garland said.
Travelers know Cruise Inn as “reliable, comfortable and welcoming,” Garland said.
The organization was recognized at the American Lodging Investment Summit in January as one of the most innovative, new concepts in the hospitality industry, Garland said.
“The Cruise Inn RV Parks brand represents the genuinely friendly customer service experience we want our guests to have every time they stay with us,” said Garland’s wife, co-owner Mari Garland.
The park is situated on the western edge of Grand Junction in Colorado’s wine country, minutes away from dozens of local wineries, distilleries, brew pubs and all the recreational activities the area has to offer.
Amenities include extra-wide pull-through and grassy back-in sites with full hook-ups; free WiFi; cable TV in select sites; a well-stocked convenience store with snacks, groceries, souvenirs and drinks; a splashpad water feature; modern playground and swings near a central fire pit; air-conditioned laundry; recreation room; clean bathrooms with tiled showers and private dressing areas; propane; and secure boat storage.
