The Five County Trading Area known as The Grand Valley, is the largest 215,000 population center between Denver and Salt Lake. The Grand Valley is a High Desert Oasis in the otherwise baron Rocky Mountains and uniquely distanced far from the umbrella influence of larger neighboring markets. Grand Junction, Delta and Montrose, Colorado are linked together as the only contiguous population base located in a Valley 75 miles long and 25 miles wide surrounded by tall mountains with irrigation from the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers. The Trading Area is a major transportation, agricultural, mining, recreation and retail hub for a 200-mile region. The area holds the largest oil shale reserves in the United States and in recent years Halliburton’s natural gas drilling has made a dramatic impact on employment, population growth and wages. Western Colorado has the fastest population growth in the State. Denver, Texas and California retirees have found the perfect climate, as have the wineries and fruit growers. The Denver Post reports the once tiny community of Montrose is a boomtown. “National retail stores line South Townsend Avenue in Montrose, which is experiencing record growth. More than 1,000 people move here annually, with no slowdown in sight.” Montrose is the 18th fastest growing “micropolitian” area in the nation according to the U.S. Census Bureau and the population has doubled since 1990.
