They make up most of the customer base, but women aren’t the only customers at Wax What?
The waxing and airbrushing business opened Aug. 1 at 480 West Park Drive, Unit 105 and offers service to both sexes.
“We get more women than men, but men do come in for chest and back waxes,” owner Ginny Halcomb said.
Just for the ladies, Wax What? also offers post-waxing services such as placing a rhinestone sticker or a temporary tattoo on the skin after a Brazilian wax or facial-like services for that area.
Halcomb said there are more places that offer waxing in Grand Junction than she once thought, but business has been “going really good” because clients can make appointments or walk-in for a wax. She said Brazilian and eyebrow waxes are the most popular items on the Wax What? list of services. Services cost between $7 for a nose or ear wax to $95 for a full leg wax and a Brazilian wax.
While David Eisner has given up his downtown Grand Junction office space, the veteran criminal defense attorney hasn’t gone away. As of Sept. 1, Eisner’s law practice was no longer associated with Harris Office Suites, 619 Main St.
Eisner said even when he had a unit at the downtown facility, he largely worked out of his home. His business website and contact information remain the same: http://www.davideisnerlaw.com and 970-640-1852.
Clients generally expect an attorney to have an office-type presence, he noted.
“It was a virtual office down there, and I decided there was no need to maintain that facade,” Eisner said. “It’s a positive move on my part ... a gradual step toward full retirement.”
No word on when that might happen. Eisner has maintained a small law practice since retiring in 2007 from the Colorado Public Defender system. Eisner was the head of the Grand Junction Public Defender’s Office from 1993 to 2007.
A growing, Southern-style barbecue restaurant chain that got its start in Eagle County is now serving in its first Garfield County location.
Moe’s Original BBQ opened Sept. 15 at 1826 Grand Ave. in Glenwood Springs.
“It’s great Southern food like you won’t find around here very frequently, to be honest with you. We call it a Southern soul food revival,” said John Gregg, owner of the Glenwood location.
Moe’s made its debut in 2001 when former Alabamans Mike Fernandez, Ben Gilbert and Jeff Kennedy began roasting meats on a charcoal grill at Kennedy’s doublewide in Minturn and selling it at a local eatery there. That led to catering, a concession trailer, and eventually Moe’s restaurant locations in Eagle County. Now there also are Moe’s in Denver, Fort Collins, and in Alabama and several other states.
The Glenwood Moe’s — not to be confused with Moe’s Southwest Grill, an unrelated restaurant also in Glenwood Springs — serves up offerings including pulled pork; smoked chicken, turkey and chicken wings; ribs; fried catfish; shrimp; a kids menu; and takeout food and catering.
Early-week hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., with a later closing time the rest of the week.
Real Deals on Home Decor, 2463 U.S. Highway 6&50, will close its doors in mid-December but not before its owner marks down items starting next month. Carla Kohls said running the business became too hectic while trying to raise a family and supporting her husband, who travels for work.
“I do a lot of stuff,” she said. “I’m trying to slow it down a little bit. There are only so many marathons I can run.”
Kohl’s business, a franchise that sells home decorations and trendy pieces for all seasons, is for sale. Interested buyers can visit the company’s website, http://www.realdeals.net. Other stores in the Grand Junction building including Two Divas and Baby Z’s also are closing, Kohls said.
Real Deals is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
There are plenty of Halloween items, and Christmas decorations will be coming in soon, Kohls said. Kohl’s advice for shoppers: “Come get the merchandise before there’s only ugly stuff left.”
