Welcome to Mesa Riverview Shopping Center's monthly E-Newsletter - Riverview News -- connecting the businesses at Mesa Riverview with each of you... the people who work in those businesses.

Father's Day is Sunday, June 18 this year. Some may think it's a relatively "new" holiday, in fact, Father's Day has been celebrated since the Middle Ages. It is celebrated in many countries around the world while some countries celebrate it on different dates. In the United States it is a very important day in June to remember. It celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make in their children's lives. Father figures can include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers, great-grandfathers, godfathers as well as other close male relatives.

Father's Day is also an important retail/gift giving day. Many people send or give cards or gifts to their fathers. Popular Father's Day gifts include sports items or clothing, electronics, cooking/grilling supplies and tools for household maintenance. But let's face it, it's not easy to pick the right gift for Dad.

To help with the gift giving dilemma, there are several easy suggestions right here at Mesa Riverview! Treat Dad to something different, like tickets to a comedy show at Jester'z or gift cards for a haircut at Sport Clips or Great Clips or a great shave at Gentleman Joe's (now located by BoSa Donuts). And maybe Dad doesn't know how wonderful a massage can be—a gift card for a massage at Elements Massage would be a special treat. Or maybe it's dining on a tasty pizza at Peter Piper Pizza, Rosati's or at the new Fired Pie or tasty barbeque at Famous Dave's. Another treat for Dad would be the latest movie at Cinemark in their luxurious lounge chairs. And don't forget, for the "Sports Enthusiast Dad" Bass Pro Shops is always a perfect choice! There are loads of options at Mesa Riverview to make this Father's Day special!

Light Rail Construction for the Mesa to Gilbert Road Extension has begun. The light rail has proven to be a very popular mode of transportation in The Valley. The next leg of the Valley's light-rail system will be going through Main Street and extend from just east of Mesa Drive to Gilbert Road. Work will be done in sections to minimize impact on the area. Completion of the project is expected to be late 2018 or early 2019.
