• Trendz Boutique has opened at 455 Main St.
The store sells handbags, exotic dancing and nightclub clothing, shoes, wallets, business card holders and body lace “for the bedroom,” said Trendz Boutique owner Jes Dodson.
This is Dodson’s first time opening a retail store. She previously served as retail manager for Zales Jewelers.
Dodson said the store will offer something for every woman.
“Nothing makes a woman happier than getting a new bag or wallet or something special,” she said.
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Trendz is closed Sundays and Mondays.
• White Hall Village is for sale. The 25,000-square-foot building at 600 White Ave. reopened with retail stores nearly a year ago, but the hall’s owner closed and locked its doors last month. Certain White Hall Village stores, including Heart of the Dragon, Peace and Love, Wandering Gypsy and Vital Wonders, are still in operation in other locations and offer their wares at the Downtown Grand Junction Farmers Market.
The building is for sale through Keller Williams Realty for $985,000 and is zoned for commercial enterprise. For information about purchasing the building, visit http://www.1stchoiceCO.com.
• Flowers by Lorraine, 1938 N. First St., is moving. The flower shop will move into its new location in the Corner Square development at First Street and Patterson Road in mid-October. The flower store will be located in a storefront to the southeast of the Egg & I restaurant.
• Curves of Grand Junction, 2478 Patterson Road, No. 23, and Curves of Clifton, 590 32 Road, Unit D, have extended their business hours each day of the week, including holidays. The women-only gyms will offer extended hour access from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m.
• Valley Crane & Equipment LLP, 1795 Launa Drive in Montrose, now offers compact construction equipment made by Terex.
Terex manufactures excavators, wheel loaders, site dumpers, tractor loader backhoes, track loaders, light towers, power buggies, telehandlers, compaction rollers and tracked utility vehicles.
Valley Crane & Equipment rents and sells construction equipment. The addition of another equipment brand might help the company stand out when the construction industry comes out of its slump, said Rick Veenstra of Valley Crane & Equipment.
“We’re always looking toward the future, preparing to be back to full force once the economy turns around,” Veenstra said. “We believe that carrying Terex compact construction equipment will attract customers to Valley Crane & Equipment when they are ready to buy again.”
• Participating Ace Hardware, Costco Wholesale, Home Depot and Sam’s Club stores will offer special $1 pricing on compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) in parts of Colorado served by Xcel Energy while supplies last. The energy efficient bulbs can save an energy customer up to $25 a year, according to Xcel Energy Product Portfolio Manager Kim Sherman, and last seven to 10 years.
“Replacing the most frequently used incandescent light bulbs in your home with Energy Star qualified bulbs is an easy way to save money and help protect the environment,” Sherman said.

“The course is in excellent shape, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful layout as the colors change,” said Ty Treacy, Telluride’s head golf professional.
Telluride Ski Resort also announced that it will dedicate a ski run known as Glade Run to Captain Jack Carey, a longtime skier and Telluride resident who died in a bike accident July 17. The dedication ceremony will be Sept. 25.
