If you make the drive down Highway 50 in Orchard Mesa, you'll notice someone new has moved into the old Grand River Humane "Save-A-Pet" store. Who's the new neighbor?

The Save-A-Pet thrift store shut down some time ago. Since then the building at 2651 US-50 has sat empty. Not long ago, residents could see signs of activity in the vacant building. As of a few days ago, the "OPEN" sign in the window is on.

Please welcome Famous Flooring. I stopped in earlier today to see what was going on. The business features an impressive selection of laminate flooring, along with many other flooring options.

I spoke with an employee whose name I believe was Bambi (hence the "Bam's" on the sign pictured above). She provided a brochure with a list of products and services. The brochure mentions flooring options including:

  • carpet
  • hardwood
  • laminate
  • tile
  • luxury vinyl flooring

Oddly, I'm in the middle of a 15-month-long remodel which thus far has focused on re-texturing and repainting walls and ceilings. Flooring will have to wait until I decide whether or not to rip out a few walls. Windows and trim will be last, which at my current rate, will be sometime in the year 2057.

Remodeling is always fun when you're moving at the speed-of-stop. Fortunately, with this new space featuring quality flooring from Carpet Direct, I may pick up a little steam and stay on schedule.

I always enjoy it when a new business opens in town. I'm equally delighted to see this property back in use. If you're heading down Highway 50 anytime soon, stop by and check it out.
