Famous Colorado Brand Extending Front Range Reach
Monday, 21 April 2008 08:47

Colorado’s most famous almond toffee and candy makers have sweetened the retail landscape in Arvada, Colo., by opening an Enstrom’s store featuring the World Famous Almond Toffee, among other chocolates, confections and premium ice cream made according to Chet Enstrom’s original 1929 recipe.

The location, 6770 West 52nd Ave. in Arvada, was previously a Stephany’s Chocolates factory store. Enstrom Candies purchased Stephany’s Chocolates in 2006. Because Stephany’s is a wholesale line of all-natural chocolates and confections sold via regional and national retailers, the company converted the Arvada factory store to an Enstrom’s retail location. The company also operates three other year-round Colorado retail locations – in Grand Junction, Fruita and Denver (Cherry Creek area).

Goodwill Bridges Digital-TV Divide
Wednesday, 27 February 2008 16:43

Goodwill Industries International is part of a national coalition that is educating the public about the transition in WHEN from analog (over-the-air) television to all-digital broadcasting. Digital broadcasting promises to provide a clearer picture and more programming options and will free up airwaves for use by emergency responders.

Consumers with television sets with built-in digital tuners or TV sets connected to cable, satellite or other pay service will likely not be affected, but Goodwill Denver is concerned that some consumers with limited English-speaking skills, those in rural areas and those in lower income brackets may "fall through the cracks" and not receive critical information about the transition.
