Sign Junkie comes to Arizona City
  • Updated

ARIZONA CITY — Arizona City has a new and fun family owned business making its grand opening in Arizona City.

Sign Junkie, located in the old Tumbleweed Market on Sunland Gin Road, is brand new to the area, with custom made signs for home decor that matches anyone’s taste.

Started by her daughter Kelsie, Nicki Wyble and her husband took over the day-to-day operations and have planted roots in Arizona City. Wyble says while it is always scary to start a new business, she is excited for the people of the area to see what the store has to offer.

“So far, it has been pretty good,” Wyble said. “We were hoping to provide something for the community that really is not out here. A place where they can come in and find gifts for anybody. We wanted to bring something here so people don’t have to go all the way to the valley.”

The store opened Oct. 2 for their soft opening, and will be having a grand opening Saturday, Oct. 16. The family owned business started out online, but recently found the space they currently inhabit and renovated it to be just how they envisioned it.

“We have done a lot of the stuff ourselves,” Wyble said. “Our intention was to do something a little different, it’s really been a family affair getting everything set up. It has been really fun and exciting to see it come together.”

For Wyble, this is a chance for the people of Arizona City to have something they can call their own, and hopes the new business can thrive and be a positive experience for the community.

“I’m hoping people will come in and have fun with it and enjoy it and find things that they would want to put into their home,” Wyble said. “I think we have provided a nice, quality little store for them to do that with.”

Arizona City to host 'Trunk or Treat' event
  • Updated

ARIZONA CITY — The Arizona City Fire District and Fire Association will host the sixth annual “Trunk or Treat” from 5 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 31 at the Arizona City Fire District. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated “Trunk” that evening.

Over the past couple of years, and with what our children and families have had to deal with, the district and association plan to give the community a place to spend the evening having a safe family fun night.

Over the years, roughly 1,600 children and families have attended the event which continues to grow in popularity. Attendees will be spaced appropriately with “trunks” open, decorated and distributing as much candy as they can supply in addition to the more than 1,400 pounds of candy provided by the district.

In addition, well over 100 pounds of candy was donated before that night in the past from generous local residents and businesses.

CDC mandates will be strictly enforced with rules and regulations implemented by the district as well as the state and county recommendations. Distancing between “trunks,” games and children in line will be closely monitored.

This is a perfect opportunity to showcase your business with a chance to distribute candy to children while giving back to the community.

Last year’s “Trunk or Treat” was treated as a ‘candy and smile’ drive thru. This year we will be able to have the evenings as in the past by handing out over 55 gallons of lemonade and over 55 pounds of popcorn, a DJ playing all our Halloween favorites along with many give-a-ways.

The district and association are inviting local friends and businesses to make a sponsorship donation to help with the program cost and or a “Trunk.” Additionally, all of you are invited to display your corporate or business advertising and sponsorship with your own proprietary graphics.
