Gilbert business is booming. Vibrancy is racing past pre-pandemic levels. We’ve noticed restaurants have lines again. Sales are up and pent-up spending patterns are taking form. As a catalyst for business growth, the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce is taking the lead in connecting businesses with each other and with prospective customers and clients.
Gilbert is THE PLACE to be in Arizona.
As the 5th largest city in Arizona, the Town of Gilbert has a population of about 250,000 residents and is growing. The median age is 34 years old. Nearly half of all residents have at least a Bachelor’s degree and the median household income is $98,963. It’s a prime location for the growth of housing and business. And that’s exactly what’s happening.
In our article, Changing Landscape of Gilbert, we discuss the growth of real estate, both residential and commercial. This includes a push for urban luxury and ever-expanding business options. Residents are flocking to local eateries and shops which keeps our hyperlocal economy in good shape.
Gilbert Business is Booming
We may not be quite out of the pandemic woods yet, you wouldn’t know if you’re spending time in Gilbert. Movie theatres, Hale Theatre, performing arts centers, and family entertainment like Fat Cats and Bowlero are seeing increased activity and sales.
Supporting local businesses is a big focus for me and Mickie. As longtime members of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce, we know firsthand the value of purchasing from local establishments. More money stays right here in Arizona rather than being paid to big corporations. That means more people stay, work, play, and live here.
