Hello, readers! And welcome back to the column with all the great new businesses. We’re already three months into 2019 and already there have been so many openings. Just look back at any of our previous briefings.

This time is no different. First, I’ll start with one that pairs a new business with an event to boot; beyond that, I have three more varying establishments that opened earlier this year. Here’s the news!

First, help Mayor Jerry Weiers, Councilwoman Laura Tolmachoff and the Glendale Chamber of Commerce welcome Trinity Chiropractic to the community with a grand-opening, ribbon-cutting ceremony from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, March 25. In addition to food, music, raffles, and wine tasting with Wines for Humanity, Trinity Chiropractic will offer spinal screenings, tours of its new office, and free chair massages. As a special introductory offer, the practice will give attendees $29 exams, with X-rays when necessary. Trinity Chiropractic is at 18275 N. 59th Avenue, Suite M-178. For more information about the event, contact Sheryl Iszler at 602-603-5444 or For more information about the practice and its services, visit

Then, Eyeglass World recently opened at 7470 W. Bell Road, Suite 206. It is northeast of Bell Road and 75th Avenue, beside Café Zupas and across 75th Avenue from Arrowhead Towne Center. The store performs eye exams and sells brand-name and prescription eyeglasses for men, women and kids, as well as sunglasses and contact lenses. A great option for those looking to save some money is the company’s two-for-$78 deal. This location is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays, and it is closed Sundays.

Moving along, Scissor Paws may not exactly be new – but it is… Founded in 2012 as a mobile grooming service, it now has its own shop. If you’re not sold yet, well, it offers two packages, according to its website: a full groom, which includes a bath, haircut, nail trimming, ear cleaning, teeth cleaning and anal gland services; or just a bath and brush, which substitutes the haircut for the simple use of a FURminator. Shampoos are locally produced, natural, biodegradable, nontoxic and gluten free, its website continues. It opens at 8 a.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, but it’s closed Sundays and Mondays. It’s located at 15224 N. 59th Avenue, Suite 17, southwest of Greenway Road and 59th Avenue. For more information, visit or find it on Facebook @scissorpawsaz.

Here’s an interesting one. Botánica Cubana Oshun is a boutique shop for Cuban items for the Yoruba religion. From tureens to pedestals and beyond, there are plenty of items to find in Botánica Cubana Oshun, but if that’s your realm, you’ll have to stop on in to find out all there is to know. It’s located at 6409 W. Glendale Avenue, near the Sonic off Glendale Avenue. For more information, visitánica-Cubana-Oshun-724388294609644, call 602-321-2402 or email

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