Business Briefcase: February 22, 2017
Submitted by Shane McOwen on Wed, 02/22/2017 - 12:00am
Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Business Briefcase!
President’s Day has come and gone, and so too have my good feelings about it.
No, it has nothing to do with politics. Back when your Briefcase host was Briefcase pupil, every few years it would coincide with my birthday. What a glorious birthday present — a free day off! Younger Briefcase host was ready for a lifetime of these gifts thanks to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays falling in the month of February.
Unfortunately, they don’t let you know that those wonky schedules do not follow you into the real world. Unless you become a teacher, but I think they pay a king’s ransom for those days off. Have you been in a room full of 6-year-olds after recess? That’s why I don’t often visit my mother’s first-grade class.
I’m still convinced inservice days were really a cover for just taking naps in the library to recover from the students’ wrath.
Let’s get down to business, shall we?
The Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce is hosting a grand opening ribbon-cutting celebration for CPR Cell Phone Repair in Tolleson at 9897 W. McDowell Road.
The ribbon cutting will take place at 3 p.m. March 2.
If you’re not sure what businesses such as CPR Cell Phone Repair do, well then, lucky you. They fix the gadgets we use basically every day for work or play.
The company has been in the electronic repair business for more than 10 years. CPR takes care of a multitude of issues regarding smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and computers, including Macs.
This is the business’ first location in the West Valley.
For information, call 602-434-3008 or visit cellphonerepair.com.
If you’re in the mood for another ceremony, Mountain America Credit Union is celebrating a grand opening ribbon cutting put on by the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce at noon March 3 at 16326 W. Yuma Road in Goodyear.
Mountain America was originally formed in the 1930s as the Salt Lake Telephone Employees Credit Union. After a couple of mergers in the 1980s, Mountain America branched (no pun intended) out from Utah to Idaho, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico.

Buckeye has officially announced a Fry’s Food & Drug grocery store at the northwest corner of Jackrabbit Trail and Indian School Road in Buckeye. Fry’s will be the anchor store at the Village Grove at Verrado shopping center.
The store will be approximately 125,000 square feet, and will feature a fueling station, wine-tasting bar, a Starbucks and an in-store chef. That’s slightly less than three acres of grocery shopping with a ton of amenities!
Construction is expected to get underway at any time now, and is expected to be completed late this year.
The project may sound familiar, because it was first mentioned in the Briefcase in 2015. The kind folks in the Buckeye Economic Development Department filled your Briefcase host in on the early, early stages of planning and development.
They deserve kudos as well for nailing the construction time frame, saying it should begin in early 2017. Gold stars all around!
That’s all for this week, folks. Thanks for reading.
