Business Briefcase: October 21, 2014

I’ll be honest. I’m not feeling particularly creative or witty (or rather, pretending like I’m creative or witty like I normally do) while writing the Briefcase this morning. Two busy weeks followed up by a bout of illness will do that for you, I guess.

Speaking of illness, did you know that heart disease and the flu kill way more Americans statistically than Ebola?

The Business Briefcase isn’t really the platform for my sneaky editorializing but hey, I saw the shot and took it. No regrets here. Get your flu shot, eat well and live healthy.

Speaking of living healthy, on to our first new business.

Flex AZ Gym opened earlier this month in Avondale.

Business Briefcase: October 14, 2014

Rachel TrottHey there Briefcasers.

Our editor, Cary Hines, is off on a much needed vacation, which means I and the rest of our fairly young news staff have been left to its own devices. We’ve stayed extra busy here trying to get the newspapers put together and keep the newsroom from burning down.

Business Briefcase: October 7, 2014

Hey there, Briefcasers. This column has a young, hipster vibe to it with some news about some trendier-type businesses setting up shop in Goodyear and Buckeye. But, hey, I’ll take them. (I may have just turned 25, but I’m still hanging onto my youthful 20s no matter what, dangit!)

Let’s get news about a closure out of the way first so we can end on some more optimistic notes.

Office Max south of Interstate 10 at 850 S. Watson Road is closing in November. We’ll keep an eye on what replaces it.

Moving east, Verrado Coffee Co. opened last month just north of McDowell Road at 1829 N. Verrado Way in Buckeye.

Business Briefcase - September 30, 2014

It’s here! Stock up on fun-sized candy, pull out your cauldron for the kitchen, light your pumpkin-scented candles. It’s finally Halloween season.

OK, so it’s still a day shy of October, but I’ve been good about patiently waiting so we’ll just pretend that it’s cozy sweater weather outside and talk about all the seasonal businesses opening up in the area.

Business Briefcase: September 23, 2014

Rachel TrottHowdy, all y’all. Could it be that we’re finally dropping below triple-digit temperatures? We’re one step closer to me feeling alright about breaking out the pumpkin-scented candles and sweaters. And ladies, don’t you love the fall trend of long, soft sweaters and jeans or leggings? That’s a comfy fashion trend I can finally get behind.

Business Briefcase - September 16, 2014

Howdy, folks.

I have two commonly asked about businesses to get to, but I do want to take time to quickly recap over what Business Briefcase is and what we do and don’t cover. If you’re a veteran, feel free to skip to the first business in bold, but if you’re a newcomer, pull up a seat.

Business Briefcase: September 9, 2014

Welcome to another Business Briefcase.

It’s barely the second week of September and Halloween-themed specialty stores are already popping up sporadically around town.

I’m still in reasonable denial about all the retail commercialism forcing fall on shoppers since it’s still 100-degree weather outside, so I’m going to hold off on the annual Halloween store roundup in the Briefcase until a little closer to the actual holiday. If you’re really serious about putting together your costume nearly two months ahead of time and are bummed by my decision, I hope you’ll forgive me.

Let’s start with some new business news.

A new Jones Ford car dealership broke ground last week on approximately seven acres of land sandwiched between Watson and Miller roads on Yuma Road in Buckeye.
