Unemployment in the Grand Valley is higher than the state average...and the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce has been trying to find ways to boost business. It's unveiling a new “shop locally” effort today (5/24).

The group's President and CEO Diane Schwenke told Colorado Public Radio's Anna Panoka the “Blue Bandwagon Campaign” will try to get residents to think about where they spend their money.
