In February, I suggested 5 Businesses Grand Junction Really Needs. After compiling the results, there were two clear winners.

Based on your votes, these are how the five businesses stack up.

  1. Cracker Barrel - 34.2%
  2. Trader Joe's - 30.75%
  3. Macy's - 12.64%
  4. Ikea - 8.91%
  5. Eddie Bauer - 1.15%

There was also the opportunity to pick your own business and 12.35% did just that. Here are the other businesses suggested in order of votes received:

  • In-N-Out Burger
  • Costco, Joe's Crab Shack, Whole Foods (tie)
  • Jack in the Box
  • PF Chang's, Twin Peaks, Captain D's, 5 Guys Burgers and Fries, Cheese Cake Factory, Long John Silvers, TGI Friday's, Cici's Pizza, Santiago's (tie)

One person voted to bring in a major manufacturing business with good paying jobs. Another suggested moving to Denver.

Now that you know the latest results, you can vote for one of these or add your own to the list.
