The city of Tuscumbia does not have any big economic retailers planning to relocate to the city for now, but the city hopes a new partnership with a Birmingham business will change that.
Tuscumbia mayor, Kerry Underwood, said they have signed a three year contract … with a company named Retail Strategies.
“Retail Strategies already has relationships with not only developers, but with developers of particular properties. They also have relationships with all those retailers and restaurants and box top type of stores,” said Underwood.
Underwood said Highway 72 has great potential to bring in new businesses, but so does the downtown area with space already available.
“We’d love to have more restaurants and an entertaining nightlife here and on the highway, we’re looking for more of the big-box retail stores to come into play. We feel like we can be the town with two different personalities,” said Underwood.
