Colorado Kroger employees could go on strike as talks stall

Employees of Kroger, the parent company of City Market, could go on strike within the next several weeks following the collapse of talks between union leaders and store officials last week in Denver where the company is headquartered. Moab residents don’t need to worry about a work disruption here; the Moab store is not unionized. However, other City Market stores throughout Colorado could have labor disruptions if a settlement isn’t reached.

Setting store at Sorrel River Ranch

The motto of Sorrel River Ranch & Spa is, “Where Luxury Meets Adventure.” By May 1, the resort expects to add a retail store to its amenities when JJ’s Mercantile opens. The store will sell goods including beer and wine, bread, food and many other items at the ranch, located roughly at milepost 17 on Highway 128. Ranch owner Liz Rad flew in for a “barn-raising” event last week. Actually, a crane was used to move modular buildings into place. While the first floor will house the store, upstairs will be employee housing.Photo by Doug McMurdo
