Hello, readers, and welcome back to Business Briefcase! This week, our attaché is packed with community news and social events – one of which includes ice cream, which is always a good thing to come together over during summer months (basically eight months out of the year for us). But first, the news.

German grocery store chain Aldi recently announced plans to open a regional fulfillment center in Goodyear. The company is in the process of purchasing private land along the Loop 303 (at Indian School Road and Cotton Lane) for construction of the center, which is expected to create 138 direct jobs and could be operational by 2020.

The Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce will host Chamber 101 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, August 3, in the chamber office at 289 N. Litchfield Road, Goodyear. The monthly session is designed to help new and longtime chamber members learn about the services provided by the chamber and the benefits of membership. The Haymaker Restaurant Co. will sponsor lunch. RSVP required. Call 623-932-2260 to reserve a seat.

On Tuesday, August 8, there will be a Feed My Starving Children MobilePack event at The Wigwam, 300 E. Wigwam Boulevard, Litchfield Park. International nonprofit Feed My Starving Children is seeking more than 250 volunteers to help aid the organization in its mission to provide over 50,000 meals to children in need worldwide. Volunteers donate funds and hand-pack the meals. For more information, visit give.fmsc.org/wigwam.

Scottsdale-based 1784 Capital Holdings LLC has purchased 4.8 acres at 14120 and 14150 N. Litchfield Road in Surprise for the construction of the Waddell/Litchfield Self-Storage facility, a multistory building containing 800 units across 110,470 square feet. Construction commences in October, with completion targeted for September 2018.

And lastly, ice cream. The Chamber Events Committee will hold a Chamber Ice Cream Social from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, August 10, at the chamber office, 289 N. Litchfield Road, Goodyear. This is a great opportunity to come out and meet your neighbors, local business owners and other chamber members, and beat the heat with a chilly treat. For more information, call Jacob Mann at 623-932-2260.

That’s all the briefs for this week. Thanks for reading!
