Date: Thursday, September 14
Time: 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm ET

In a rural region, a thriving retail sector is a phenomenal asset, bringing in both people and tax revenues. Though many national retailers gravitate towards larger cities, with the right strategies, small communities also can earn their attention and investment. Discover how your community can lay the groundwork for retail attraction and creatively tell its story to gain the interest of local, regional and national firms, growing both employment opportunities and the tax base.

Attend this webinar to learn how to:

• Use data and visuals to tell your community’s retail story
• Create programs to encourage local and regional retailers to open stores
• Learn how other small communities have become retail hubs and identify replicable strategies
