(JEFF GRITCHEN, STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER) The Inland Empire has shown solid economic growth over the last seven years, but the technology sector has not been part of that equation. In fact, according to a recent study by UC Riverside’s School of Business, that sector, at least statistically, has become less significant. Technology employment represented 1.9 percent of all jobs in Riverside and San Bernardino counties in 2017, down from 2.7 percent a decade earlier. Also, the $62,600 average salary for a tech employee in 2017, while significantly higher than other Inland workers, was 62 percent lower than the corresponding statewide average for the sector. UCR’s report found that part of the answer to the problem is, in a way, already here. The region already has several economic strengths that could welcome new tech advancements and offer more lucrative job opportunities. UCR, Cal State San Bernardino and government agencies are taking lead roles in growing the sector, the report said, with help from tech incubators and accelerators. “It will take time to build a critical mass in terms of infrastructure and workforce that will enable the local ecosystem to grow and mature,” the report states. The report suggests the Inland Empire encourage technological development in areas such as goods movement and clean energy. The logistics industry, which has grown substantially in recent years and helped pull the region out of the recession, is increasingly dependant on new computerized processes. Goods movement provides local tech entrepreneurs, along with outside talent with an eye toward developing new processes, with a potentially strong home base. Clean energy, which is being produced in desert regions, is another local job sector with opportunities, the report suggests. The number of patents for clean tech is on the rise in the Inland Empire since 2008, but more patents are being issued in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, according to the report. “Attempts to turn the region into another Silicon Valley are probably unwarranted,” the report states. “Instead, the region should focus on advancing tech within industries that are already strong.” New Grocery Outlet Grocery Outlet Bargain Market will open Thursday, Dec. 13 in Riverside. The Emeryville-based grocer, with more than 300 locations in California and six other states, sells overstock inventory bought from other retailers and supermarkets. People typically call it the “TJ Maxx of grocery stores.” The store shelves include staples like milk, produce and meat, but the real discounts come in the boxed food and snacks, where items can be marked down 50-70 percent. The new store at 3550 Madison St. will host a ribbon cutting at 8:55 a.m. Grocery Outlet will offer several promotional events on opening day and Saturday, Dec. 15, with child-friendly activities and a benefit for Toys for Tots. The first 200 customers in line will get a Grocery Outlet gift card valued at $5 – $200. Jennifer Reed is the location’s independent owner-operator. Airport marketing hits YouTube In case you missed it, there’s a pretty big airport in the Inland Empire and its operators want to make sure you know all about it. A 90-second video promoting Ontario International Airport had landed at YouTube, airport officials said last week. The video, “This is ONT,” is part of a broader marketing effort to raise awareness of the Inland Empire’s major air terminal and increase passenger and freight traffic. The Ontario International Airport Authority, which was created in 2012, is working, through marketing and advertising, to bring new passengers to its two terminals. Ontario International Airport offers 67 daily departures by nine airlines, including flights to Mexico and Taiwan. Medical complex sold Park Plaza, an office building complex in Redlands mostly occupied by healthcare professionals, has been sold for $6.3 million, according to the broker CBRE. The buildings, at 1176, 1782 and 1790 West Park Park Avenue, was sold to Cyprus West Partners in Rancho Santa Margarita. According to CBRE, when the sale of the three-story, 52,047-square-foot complex closed, Loma Linda University Medical Center signed a 12-year lease for 15,000 square feet. Terms of the lease were not disclosed. The new tenant brings the occupancy level to 60 percent. Existing tenants include government offices that occupy 21 percent of the buildings. Student housing sold A 216-unit student housing complex near UC Riverside was recently sold to a Seattle investor, CBRE reported. Sterling Highlander, at 3080 Iowa Ave., has three, four-story buildings and a clubhouse, totaling almost 231,000 square feet of rentable space. Horizon Realty Advisors in Seattle bought the complex for an undisclosed price. CBRE National Student Housing’s Jaclyn Fitts, William Vonderfecht and Casey Schaefer, along with CBRE Inland Empire multifamily specialist Cray Carlson, arranged the transaction. Ben Roelke and Ian Walker with CBRE’s Debt and Structured Finance team secured long-term financing for the buyer. Bus shelters for tropical Hawaii Tolar Manufacturing Co., a Corona metal fabricator that manufactures bus stop shelters, is working on a project to provide 62 such shelters to Kauai County on the island of Kauai in Hawaii, according to the company. Recently, Tolar’s product was blessed at a bus stop near a Kauai County sports complex. Tolar’s shelters for this project include photosensor-activated lighting, new seating designs, wall-mounted map cases and photovoltaic battery storage. There are four different shelter designs being produced for this project. Kauai is one of the rainiest places on Earth with more than 400 inches of rain falling annually.

After our dummy run to Madrid in August, the end of summer sales were on in the shops so I set about getting what we needed for Leo.

The ongoing stock slide has put the share price at levels not seen in almost […]
