Main Street’s local businesses find success in Market on Main comeback


GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KREX)- Market on Main is full of vendors where visitors can shop and eat locally.

Retail stores like Klik Boutique extended business hours to appeal to market on main crowds. Clerks at Klik are able to get more business while serving regulars, despite mudslides blocking some traffic.

“I do have a special orders and shipments that’s been delayed because of that,” Klik Boutique Owner Susan Lettman discusses, “I feel like the tourism is still up. I haven’t seen a difference there at all.”

Main Street is the fourth location for Klik Boutique, where its team find it’s the place to be.

“If you were here last year, you might recall Market on Main being cooped up in the parking lot of Grand Junction’s convention center,” Cora Dickey reports, “Now that Market on Main is back on the street where it belongs, local businesses get to hit different peak hours while growing their brand.”

One restaurant seeing a climb in customers on Thursdays is The Goat and Clover Tavern. The tables are packed with classic dishes around the clock.

Regular operating hours last throughout Market on Main, making the patio a prime area where people enjoy themselves.

“It kind of falls right into our sweet spot for when the market’s at its busiest. It works out really well for us,” The Goat and Clover Tavern General Manager Brandon Cramer shares, “Our patios are right on the street and overlooking the market, so you kind of get the ambience with us right here.”

As a pillar to the community, Market on Main is a platform helping local businesses profit well.

Market on Main is halfway through its course, ending September 9, but local businesses look forward to serving people like you.
