Main Street shops to celebrate their anniversaries together
The 500 block of Main Street will celebrate business anniversaries and other milestones today with live music, give-aways, and games beginning at 9 a.m.
Main Street Bagels, 559 Main St., is celebrating its 15th anniversary and will donate a portion of its proceeds to Children with Hope, an orphanage in Kenya started by Grand Junction residents Thom and Sheri Seagren.
Mark Smith, owner of Main Street Bagels, said word of milestones got around on the block earlier this summer, and various stores decided to band together to celebrate the bagel shop’s anniversary and others.
“It’s a friendly block,” Smith said.
Tangle, 525 Main St., is having a fourth anniversary.
Kairos Children’s Boutique, which will offer face painting, is marking its recent move from 129 S. Sixth St. to 533 Main St.
Toys for the Fun of It, 519 Main St., is celebrating its 15th year of operation and will have sidewalk chalk drawing and a birthday cake.
Brown Cycles, 549 Main St., is celebrating its 10th anniversary and will offer free bratwursts. Parking spaces on the south side of the street will be blocked off so people can ride specialty bikes from Brown Cycles, and radio station KAFM and local bike groups will have booths on the block, according to Brown Cycles owner Chris Brown.
“I have a set of really loyal customers. I wish there was a way I could show them my appreciation, so this is kind of a start,” Brown said.
