Buxton to Assist La Junta, CO with Retail Recruitment Efforts

FORT WORTH, TEXAS, (December 16, 2016) — The City of La Junta, CO, recently partnered with Fort Worth-based Buxton to support retail recruitment efforts and gain insights on visitors to the City. Buxton’s advanced customer analytics will allow the City to identify the retailers that match the shopping and dining habits of consumers in La Junta’s trade area, and over the next three years provide data-backed verification of retail potential in the community. 

By becoming a Buxton client, La Junta will have access to SCOUT, Buxton’s proprietary web-based real estate platform, giving local leaders information at their fingertips to analyze retail matches for different areas of the City.

“We look forward to utilizing Buxton’s consumer analytics,” said Ryan Stevens, executive director of La Junta Economic Development. “We’re excited to have the data-backed knowledge to recruit the retailers that are right for our residents and visitors.”

“Buxton is happy to begin working with La Junta,” said Parker Key, director of sales in Buxton’s public sector division. “Our advanced analytics will help ensure that La Junta is making the most informed economic development decisions.”
