A new spa and fitness center are on tap for Gilbert. Queen Creek has a new place for massages. And Mesa is planning a coffee shop that got its start in Oregon.

Xtrim opening

Xtrim Med Spa will break the seal Tuesday on its new clinic.

The spa is southeast of the Lindsey and Baseline roads intersection in Gilbert. Spa attendants offer free consultation on the company's skin and body care services.

More openings

Two other Gilbert business are hosting their grand openings in August. USA Youth Fitness Center is opening Aug. 4 at the northwest corner of Gilbert and Ray roads. On Aug. 27, Coffee Cove will start jolting their customers awake with their caffeinated beverages from their location on Gilbert Road, about a half-mile north of Warner Road.

Massage Envy

Massage Envy started rubbing customers' sore shoulders on Monday at Queen Creek Marketplace. The chain of massage clinics has 420 locations in 36 states, and the Queen Creek location is the seventh location to open in the Valley.

Drive-through coffee

Mesa Design Review Board officials signed off on a drive-through coffee shop called Dutch Bros. Coffee.

The company has plans for a small 450-square-foot location at Gilbert and McKellips roads that would also feature a drive-through. So if you're looking for cushy chairs, music and conversation, you'd better stick with Starbucks.

The shop is Dutch Bros.' second location after recently entering the Valley by opening a store near Arizona State University on Rural Road between University Drive and Apache Boulevard.

The company, which started in Grants Pass, Ore., only operates in the western United States. While Oregon hosts the most Dutch Bros. Coffee locations, the company also has a presence in California, Washington, Idaho and Nevada.

More Total Wine

Total Wine & More, a national wine and beer superstore chain, opened its second Arizona location this week at Desert Ridge Marketplace, northeast of Loop 101 and Tatum Boulevard.

The grand opening hoopla is scheduled for today .

The only other Arizona Total Wine & More is at Arrowhead Towne Center in Glendale.

The 19,000-square-foot northeast Phoenix store carries more than 8,000 varieties of wine, 1,000 or so specialty beers and 2,000 brands of "spirits."

The Maryland-based retailer claims to offer wine from nearly every wine-growing region in the world and sell it at the lowest possible prices.
