I've passed through Grand Junction once, in 2010. I remember it as an oasis after hours of driving through uninhabited red-rock wilderness in Utah, and before hours of treacherous driving across the continental divide. Alas, I didn't go looking for supermarket artifacts while I was there...

Grand Junction is about half the size of Pueblo, and this reflects itself in the brevity of the location list. It does have one Safeway marina, however: 2401 North Avenue, which most recently housed a Hastings store. The roofline's been thinly disguised by a stair-step facade, and adjacent real estate listings indicate the centre was built in 1964.
"The pale pastels which have been featured in most food stores during the past 20 years are no longer in tune with the mood of the 1970s."
