Howdy, all, and welcome to the Business Briefcase.

I hope everyone enjoyed the “nice” temperatures over the last few days. We’re not exactly opening our windows, but I think mid-90s temperatures qualify as nice this time of year.

By next week’s issue, summer will have officially hit. That’s right, June 20 is the first day of summer.

Now that you’re done laughing at that hilarious joke, let’s move on to the business items, shall we?

First up, some big news for the West Valley.

United Parcel Service has announced plans for a new $180 million regional processing center in Goodyear.

View reporter Kourtney Balsan has the full details on Page 1, but here are a few highlights.

The package-processing facility will be located by Interstate 10 and Loop 303, near the Dick’s Sporting Goods and REI warehouses, and will expand a current 618,000-square-foot building to 970,000 square feet.

The UPS hub is expected to be operating at a limited capacity by the end of the year. The total expansion completion is set for late 2019.

The center will eventually provide more than 1,500 jobs, 500 in the full-time capacity.

For information on the new facility, visit pressroom.ups.com.

Those looking to beat the heat can jump over to Jamba Juice in Goodyear at 15479 W. McDowell Road, Suite 103.

The smoothie shop opened today, and offers a variety of fresh juices, smoothies, shots and snacks.

Jamba Juice has more than 900 locations operating in 26 states and seven countries. The first store opened in 1990 in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

Jamba Juice’s hours are 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.

For information, visit jambajuice.com.

Finally, Pottery Barn has been confirmed for the Canyon Trails Towne Center in Goodyear, at the northeast corner of Cotton Lane and Yuma Road.

Pottery Barn has signed a six-month lease for an outlet version of the store.

While an official opening date has not been released, Goodyear officials have been told to expect the home furnishing store to be up and running by the end of July, the Goodyear economic team said.

Pottery Barn is a wholly owned subsidiary of Williams-Sonoma Inc.

Keep on the lookout for the opening date.

For information, visit potterybarn.com.

That’s all for this week, folks, thanks for sticking with the Briefcase.

We’ll be back next week, celebrating the official start of summer.

We just like to be different here in Arizona. We start summer at least a month before everyone else, don’t have any toll roads, don’t observe daylight savings time and have the bola tie as the official state neckwear.

Phoenix did just jump back into the top five for largest cities in the country, and the entire Valley has been continuously growing for decades, so we must be doing something right in our neck of the woods.

As always, send questions, tips or comments to smcowen@westvalleyview.com. The Business Briefcase can also be reached on Twitter @ShaneMcOwen.

Have a great week, everyone. Take care!
