It was another informative “Mesa Morning Live” show today, celebrating the theme of “Legacy” in businesses throughout the city. Emcee Mark Cordes highlighted the chamber’s 100 years in business and welcomed longtime business owners from Pomeroy’s Mens and Missionary Stores, Surf N Ski Enterprises and Newman Chiropractic to this morning’s show.
Pomeroy’s is one of the longest operating businesses in the city, putting in 65 years in Downtown Mesa’s second oldest building. Surf N Ski has been in Mesa for 48 years in one of the oldest office buildings in the city, and Newman Chiropractic has been around for 43 years in Mesa.
“My father founded the store and he’s now 93 and just retired,” said Michel Fluhr, owner of Pomeroy’s Mens and Missionary Stores. “We are known in the LDS community for our two-pant suits for missions, but we cater to all businessmen. We sell women’s clothing now, too. I have three sisters and my dad opened a men’s store and since I work there I wanted to be able to shop there, so now we offer women’s clothes as well.”
Gary Brown, president of Surf N Ski Enterprises, and Shanlyn Newman, DR of chiropractic at Newman Chiropractic, also shared what their respective businesses offer to Mesa residents during this morning’s show.
The next “Mesa Morning Live” will be on Sept. 9, with special guest Cindy McCain.
