Shopping as a Kid in Colorado

These days kiddos behave in all kinds of different ways while shopping with Mom or Dad. When I was a kid you didn't want to touch anything in a store because in those days even the soda bottles were made of glass. Running in a store was dangerous, lol. Stores were not as kid-proof in the 70s and 80s as many are today.

Toy Stores in Colorado

Sad, but true. Toy stores are not as common as when you were a kid. It's especially noticeable around the holidays. Going into a giant toy store as a kid was a special thing. Colorado has been lucky enough to see a resurgence in the last couple of years after Toys R Us partnered with select Macy's locations to open up 1000-square-foot sections of store space dedicated to toys.

Grand Junction Sporting Goods

We saw lots of shout-outs for Stevens Sporting Goods in Grand Junction. Unlike toy stores, you have a few more options for sporting goods. Sorry kids. Dicks Sporting Goods, Big 5, are Sportsmans Warehouse's great options that are still happily serving western Colorado.
