The Basic Information Every Small Town Needs For Retail Economic Development

The definition of a small town varies depending on where you grew up or where you currently live but when it comes to retail economic development the definition of a small town is pretty simple. A small town is a place where there is nowhere to shop or eat.

For towns looking to improve their shopping and restaurant options, it can be overwhelming, confusing and depressing for a host of varied reasons. Getting a basic understanding of where a town currently stands and a black and white explanation of why they cannot get any kind of retail momentum is the first step in that process.

Figuring out where to get that kind of information, along with finding some way to pay for it is the first hurdle in that process. This is also the point where most small towns decide that they literally cannot afford to move forward on a plan of how to grow their retail profile.

R.E.D City Planning is now offering every small town a starting point for growth at a price any city can afford. For a price point of $1,500 - $2,500 depending on the size of your city we can give your town the basics every city needs to start moving in the right direction.
