Chandler economic news continues to be rosy with the latest news this week. Chandler continues to be a hotbed of economic growth. A good reason for that could be because of Chandler’s city planning, quality of schools, location to Phoenix and the growth friendly government.

The new jobs are reported to be high paying pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and other leadership roles, according to Walgreens. The new facility is expected to be operational by the fall.
Chandler has done a fantastic job over the last few years of having a business growth plan that has lead to the development of the Price Corridor. This section of Price Road along the 101 and 202 has become a destination place for many large companies and high tech start ups to land. The location, cost of living and schools have led thousands to jobs to relocate here over the last couple of years. In recent years Chandler has done a good job promoting the Price Corridor and Downtown Chandler. Most recently Chandler has highlighted the educated working force that lives close to Uptown Chandler.
