Retail Strategies doing great in Jasper

Jolly said Retail Strategies was the firm that recruited TJ Maxx, Aldi, Shoe Carnival, Petco, Hobby Lobby, Zaxby’s, Mattress Firm and a number of smaller, regional retailers to Jasper, according to the newspaper.

“The agency has an impressive tract record and for the last six years has had a partnership with the City of Jasper,” the newspaper said in an editorial. “Considering the work that this group does to contract retailers, make connections and use its influence to represent municipalities, it is no wonder that there is a bloom of retail on Interstate 22’s Exit 65 in Jasper.” One councilman, by the way, pointed to Jasper as a prime example of a city that has been able to take advantage of their exposure on U.S. Interstate 22.

A quick search on our website showed Retail Strategies was credited by Linda Lewis of the Chamber of Commerce of Walker County with Badcock Furniture and Planet Fitness coming to Jasper.

In the Planet Fitness announcement story, VonCannon said Jasper is a strong market.

“Planet Fitness has seen the success of other retailers, such as T.J. Maxx and Hobby Lobby, in the Jasper market,” he said. “That success combined with the traffic numbers in the city make for an appealing market for retailers. We are happy to do our part in bringing Planet Fitness to Jasper, and we appreciate the hard work of the chamber and the city. Jasper is definitely a pro-business city.”


We are thrilled to be moving into our 7th year with Jasper, Alabama, working with Walker County Chamber for 6 years. As our relationship has grown, so has the retail in the community. With retailers such as TJ Maxx, Aldi, Shoe Carnival, Petco, Hobby Lobby, Zaxby’s, Mattress Firm, Planet Fitness, and Badcock located in Jasper we are happy to see the quality of life and tax revenue for the city is growing.

Retail Strategies is a PROUD PARTNER with Jasper, Alabama.

My relationship with the Retail Strategies team has been extremely valuable over the last couple of years as I’ve searched for sites in the Southeast. They have been persistent and provided any information they could gather for available properties that fit my criteria. If they received news that a space was coming available they made sure to immediately give me a call and connect with the owners. I would recommend using this service to any of my colleagues looking in their client cities.
