Construction in Grand Junction, Colorado

When the current owners bought the deli back in 2014 things started off successfully. Unfortunately, just a few years later in the Spring of 2014, construction on 7th street began.

As you're most likely aware, people typically try to avoid construction zones at all costs. This led to a serious loss of business.

Time is of the essence for this family-owned and operated business. The 7th Street Deli needs to raise approximately $50,000 in order to pay back-rent or be forced to vacate the property.

If the owners can't raise the money, they may have to re-locate the deli, but the future is uncertain.
