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.

Business Briefcase - September 2, 2014

Let’s talk about tigers.

If you’re part of some of the more recent generations, you probably have fond memories of television associated with your childhood. This includes TV personalities, such as Mr. Rogers or even news anchors and business owners who grace the screens with any sort of regularity.

Business Briefcase: August 26, 2014

This is the very last Business Briefcase of August. You know what that means: soon, we won’t be getting third-degree burns on our steering wheels from the summer heat anymore. Plus, pumpkin flavored and scented everything starts rolling out in September!

I have to admit, though, as an Arizona transplant, I really do miss living someplace where there are actual trees to slowly change as autumn sets in. (I think of the “trees” in Arizona as mostly of the palm variety, or else very tall, prickly bushes. I know the arborists out here might want to have a strong word with me after this).

Anyway, enough about the desert. If you’re like me and change your hair with the seasons, consider checking out StyleZ Hair Studios, which just opened up north of Thomas Road at 2930 W. Dysart Road in Avondale.

That’s next to Gold’s Gym, if you’re looking for a big landmark.

Business Briefcase - August 19, 2014

Greetings, Briefcasers. While this was one of those weeks when I couldn’t seem to get a live person on the phone before deadline, I do have a fairly full list of things to cover, so let’s not waste any time.

Lots of hungry Buckeye residents have been asking when Firehouse Subs is opening. Hopefully, they’ll still be hungry at the end of September when the sandwich shop is expected to open south of Interstate 10 at 485 S. Watson Road, according to company officials.

Business Briefcase: August 8, 2014

Rachel TrottI’m all for learning something new every day, so let’s start out with a little “on this day in history” trivia before I get down to business.

Did you know that on Aug. 12, 1994, major league baseball players began a strike against team owners limiting their salaries? The strike lasted 232 days and as a result, the World Series was canceled for the first time since 1904.

Business Briefcase - August 5, 2014

I love seafood and freshwater fish, but it seems like our options run a little bit dry here in Arizona.

Never fear if you’re craving something with fins, because Ada’s Fish Fry opened about two weeks ago east of West Wigwam Boulevard at 14960 W. Indian School Road in Goodyear.

That’s near Millennium High School for those of you who aren’t so great with street names.
