About Gilbert and its Consumers
Incorporated in 1920, Gilbert is a large town in central Arizona, located approximately 24 miles southeast of Phoenix. Other nearby cities include Mesa (approximately 15 minutes to the north) and Tempe (approximately 20 minutes to the northwest). The town's population has skyrocketed from under 2,000 in 1970 to over 156,000 according to a 2004 census estimate. Known during much of the early 20th century as the 'Hay Capital of the World', Gilbert was primarily an agricultural community until recent years. Concurrent with the town's population growth, Gilbert has developed and transitioned rapidly to its present status as a modern suburb of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. Gilbert is home to an annual 'Gilbert Days' celebration in late November, a three-day festival in observance of the full paving of Gilbert Road through the town. Included among the recreational facilities in Gilbert are two municipal swimming pools, two community centers, a recreation center, and 14 parks, one of which is a dedicated skateboard park.
