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.

Business Briefcase: July 21, 2015

This week’s Business Briefcase will be of the quick and dirty variety since our editor Cary Hines is enjoying a scenic vacation up north, so I’m a spread a little thin with one foot in crime coverage, one foot in Briefcase, one hand designing the paper and the other hand trying to chug down some caffeinated tea.

Business Briefcase: July 14, 2015

They say the state of your mind can influence your life. That is, if you’re feeling scatterbrained or otherwise off your A-game, your work will show it. Unfortunately, I’ve been feeling a little under the weather this week following a medical procedure, and I’ve definitely seen an impact on the rest of my life — even while organizing my thoughts for work. I tried my hardest for this week’s Briefcase, but if you see a difference, then I apologize. Maybe I need a dose of yoga or another mindfulness exercise to get myself back on track for next week.

Business Briefcase - July 7, 2015

Hey, all y’all. Did you know that Osborne Jewelers broke ground on a new store in late June?

It’s big news considering that the family-owned business has been a jewelry staple in the West Valley for nearly 20 years, and the family who owns it is active in the community and politics.

Plus, the new location will be situated on prime real estate near the Harkins Estrella Falls 16 theater and the much anticipated Estrella Falls mall on the northeast corner of Estrella Parkway and McDowell Road at 15350 W. McDowell Road.

Happy almost Fourth of July! I won’t have another Briefcase until after the holiday, so stay safe, stay cool and set off one of those fireworks that spins on the ground and lights up with pretty colors for me. I think they’re called “dancing flowers”? (If it’s legal in your municipality or slice of county, of course).

First up, Kukurin Chiropractic opened a few months ago at 12409 W. Indian School Road, Suite C304, in Avondale.

Business Briefcase: June 23, 2015

Last week, we focused on Avondale, so this week, we’re going to scoot a little west and stay in Goodyear. (Also similarly to last week, we’re going to talk about some readers’ questions.)

I toyed with the idea of waiting until the very end to talk about Winco, or joking about almost forgetting it, but decided that would be too cruel. Everyone wants to know when Winco is coming to Goodyear. Even my mother, who lives out of state and visits once a season.

Business Briefcase: June 16, 2015

So, I’m definitely a self-confessed baby about bugs. I just don’t do bugs. I’m from a state where the vast majority of them freeze to death in the winter, and the ones that do survive aren’t that bad and definitely don’t sting with venom (except maybe the rare black widow).

Imagine my reaction at finding scorpions in my lovely abode. And babies, too, which means the creatures have turned my house into a gosh darned love motel. Unacceptable.
