Buxton to Assist Town of Derry, NH in Retail Recruitment Strategy
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (January 26, 2017) – The Town of Derry, NH has appointed Buxton to create a retail recruitment strategy that will bring retailers inside its town limits. Buxton, the leader in customer analytics for the retail and restaurant industry, will investigate the development opportunities needed to satisfy the demand of the area’s residents.
“The analysis will show where Derry citizens are choosing to spend their money outside of the town,” said Brian Chirichiello, Derry Town Council Chair. “To keep those dollars in our town limits, Derry is trying to recruit retailers to capture that spending. Buxton’s analysis will play an important role in those efforts.”
By using Buxton’s SCOUT platform, Derry will be able to analyze the community and review reports on matched retailers. Buxton will use proprietary methodologies and draw on its database of U.S. households to classify the spending habits and lifestyles of Derry customers. After comparing this information to the core customer profiles of regional and national businesses, Buxton will recommend retailers and restaurants whose client bases match those found among the residents of Derry.
“Through Buxton’s research, Derry will discover retail and restaurant opportunities and will be able to recruit new businesses,” said Robb Miller, director of sales at Buxton. “We are excited to begin this project and look forward to supporting the town’s retail recruitment efforts.”
Buxton has worked with more than 750 communities across the country to improve retail development strategies. Other client cities include Rochester, NH; New Rochelle, NY; Mount Holly, NC; and many others.
