Hello, readers! I may say this a lot, but I mean it – this week is sure to be a good one. Building off the jam-packed Business Briefcase from last week, I have a stacked lineup of happenings again this time.

This week, there are several worthwhile new businesses in Litchfield Park, as well as several more in Goodyear. I even got info on the mystery drive-through I mentioned last week. Before rounding out, I’ll leave you with a Tolleson outlet’s one-year anniversary celebration, which will have deals and activities galore. Here’s the news!

I’ll start in Litchfield Park. LeMonds – Aveda Salon and Spa opened in place of The Red Door Salon and Spa at The Wigwam. It had a soft opening in July and is still being renovated, with a grand opening planned for later this month. I have not yet confirmed further details as of print time. According to the 26,000-square-foot spa’s website, it has a private, coed lap pool with a surrounding courtyard; a sauna and steam room; 15 treatment rooms; and three couples suites with plush chairs, Jacuzzi tubs, separate showers, and private balconies or patios with outdoor showers, one suite of which has a rain shower. There are also four hair stations; four manicure and five pedicure stations; relaxation rooms; separate men’s and women’s locker rooms; and a retail boutique. Whew, did you get all that? I’ll let you catch your breath. For more information about LeMonds, visit wigwamarizona.com/spa.

Also in Litchfield Park, Vein Envy had a soft opening in August. The practice will celebrate its grand opening from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, September 27, with refreshments, guided tours, giveaways and specials. Vein Envy is located at 14044 W. Camelback Road, Suite 226, in the Rancho Loma Medical Plaza, off Denny Boulevard, west of the northwest corner of Camelback and Litchfield roads. For more information, contact 623-932-2260 or info@southwestvalleychamber.org. Visit veinenvy.com for details.

Now, let’s move over to Goodyear. One common inquiry is about Dunkin’ Donuts. Well, Heather Austin, director of The Ferraro Group Phoenix and a spokeswoman for Dunkin’ Donuts in Arizona, confirmed the Goodyear location will open September 12 at 211 N. Estrella Parkway, on the southeast corner of Van Buren Street and Estrella Parkway. It will include a drive-through and a patio shared with other tenants, as the city of Goodyear’s Economic Development Department previously confirmed. For more information, visit dunkindonuts.com.

Moving along, I have received word on a future Culver’s in Goodyear. Greg Landon, of franchisee Landon Management Inc., confirmed that the location is planned, though he said the exact site has yet to be determined. The city’s Economic Development Department also informed me the franchisee is hoping for a 2018 groundbreaking, with a 2019 opening. That is all the information I have at this time. For more information on the brand, visit culvers.com.

Staying in Goodyear, I mentioned in the August 29 Business Briefcase that City Council had recently approved a use permit for a future drive-through restaurant in the Canyon Trails Towne Center. Well, it will be a Filiberto’s, according to the city’s Economic Development Department. It will be 2,200 square feet, with a 492-square-foot outdoor dining patio, and will be open 24/7. I’ll keep you posted regarding any updates. It will be located at the northeast corner of Yuma Road and Cotton Lane. For more information on the “Southwest’s Favorite Mexican Food” brand, visit filibertos.com.

Over in Tolleson, Danby Outlet’s one-year anniversary trunk or treat celebration is approaching. It will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, October 20. The company will offer discounts on appliances, kitchenware and hammocks. The free-to-attend celebration is appropriate for the whole family, and will include face painting, games, a kids costume contest and trunk or treat. Food and snacks will also be available, as well as raffles for adults. Activities are free, though there may be a charge for concessions. Danby Retail Outlet Store is located at 10397 W. Van Buren Street. It is right off Van Buren Street, between North 104th and 103rd avenues. For more information, contact Regina Powell at 602-777-7061 or rpowell@danby.com.
