Downtown Grand Junction Says Farewell to Longstanding Store
Another downtown Grand Junction business is saying sayonara. After more than 20 years of service in downtown Grand Junction, the iconic store will be riding off into the sunset come March.
Why are they closing? What could be more fun than selling toys? According to the Daily Sentinel, Allen's decision to close is due entirely to financial concerns. Allen has piled his savings into the store, but spending trends are making it impossible to keep the doors open.
Shopping patterns have changed. It's more difficult to make a profit these days. It's time for me to find what else is out there. - Mike Allen in the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel
Unfortunately, Toys For the Fun of It is one of several downtown stores to announce their departure over the last 12 months.
