What people say
Our team thoroughly enjoyed Retail Academy and learning from their real estate experts on how to ‘speak retail’. We were given a list of a prospective retail and restaurant companies that would be a good fit for Warner Robins and that has given us the guidance we need to make outreach and get conversations started. For any community leaders that are taking on retail economic development themselves, I’d recommend going through the Retail Academy program.Kate HoganCommunity and Economic Development Director, Warner Robins, Georgia
I would recommend any city take this course to improve their retail impact in recruiting for businesses to locate within their city!Marlon SamsCity Manager Corbin, Kentucky
The Retail Academy workshop was great. It was helpful and the motivation we needed to shift some focus from manufacturing recruitment to restaurant and retail. I think there is some great opportunity for us, we just have to go get it.Clayton StanleyPresident, Corinth, Mississippi Alliance
“Retail Academy is an outstanding and comprehensive program that I would highly recommend. Retail Strategies provided us with a Retail Recruitment Plan identifying retailers that match our market. Their team also spent time giving us the tools and skills needed to execute the plan and support existing businesses in our area. We left the workshop with a better understanding of our market and greater relationships with the dedicated partners and leaders from the county.Mallory DarbyVP Economic Development, Mississippi County, Arkansas
