While there are several strong local retailers — some who have been here for decades — there is definitely room for more retail growth, particularly with the loss of Shopko and Herberger’s in the last year.
Moving forward, the city’s consultant firm, Retail Strategies, will target national retailers with the information gathered, and the city, chamber and ALEDA staff will target independent retailers.
We look forward to seeing action being taken to promote retail opportunities here — not only for community members, but visitors as well.
Retail Strategies is thrilled to partner with Albert Lea, MN.
