Business Briefcase - september 1, 2015

It’s no big secret that I live in Goodyear, and the West Valley View office is in Avondale, so I’m pretty centrally located in our paper’s coverage area. In journalism school, they teach us to be unbiased, but as much as it pains me to admit, journalists are still human and we have to continuously fight our tendencies for preferences, biases or bad habits.

I’ll admit I have a bad habit of focusing on those two cities, and especially, Goodyear lately.

Business Briefcase: August 25, 2015

This week’s Business Briefcase has a “readers’ frequently asked questions” theme.

Let me preface by saying that our readers are super observant. If a backhoe at a construction site doesn’t move for a few weeks, they’re on top of it.

Business Briefcase: August 18, 2015

I don’t want to get too in-depth about this first business since our staff writer Jeannette Cruz already has a feature story in the works, but I still wanted to have a discussion about it on the Business Briefcase books.

Wisconsin-based Basic Metals Inc. recently closed on purchasing a 26,000-square-foot industrial building at 15635 W. Illini St. That’s near MC85 and Estrella Parkway in Goodyear.

Business Briefcase: August 11, 2015

If you know me, you know that I really love my dog. She’s a beagle mix that I jokingly named Bagel when I was brainstorming names and eating breakfast one morning, and she’s a total sweetheart. If you love your pets like I love mine, these next two businesses are for you.

Business Briefcase - August 4, 2015

So, it’s already August. If you don’t feel like it snuck up on you, let me add that I just got a handful of emails and coupons for back-to-school sales. Time flies when you’re having fun and don’t want to go back to grad school. (Or, maybe just when I don’t want to go back to grad school. I know that some parents out there are rejoicing that their children are going back to school soon.)

Let’s start off with some back tracking to cover two openings that happened earlier in the month.

Business Briefcase - July 28, 2015

Up first is a West Valley View champ. Avondale native Sonny Gutierrez has been mentioned in this column alone a handful of times for Sonny’s Boxing Gym, which he’s ran in various West Valley locations for the past 18 years.

One of the more recent locations was a 3,000-square-foot gym in Goodyear, which was open until approximately late 2012. We covered that location’s move to its current 8,000-square-foot Goodyear location at 13765 W. Auto Drive a few months later.
