City of Castle Pines, Colorado Strengthens Retail Development Through New Partnership

FORT WORTH, TEXAS, (February 26, 2015) — The City of Castle Pines, Colorado announced today that it has entered into a partnership with analytics firm Buxton to strengthen the City’s retail economic development program. Buxton’s household-level customer analytics and retail expertise will identify the most promising potential retailers for the area, based on consumer demand.

While retail economic development programs have traditionally relied on basic demographic information, Castle Pines will utilize customer insights that go beyond demographics, presenting a convincing case to retailers seeking growth opportunities. Buxton’s proprietary web-based real estate platform SCOUT® will give local leaders the ability to analyze retail matches and provide market intelligence to existing local businesses.

“Retail recruitment and retention is an important part of Castle Pine’s economic development strategy,” said Don Van Wormer, city manager for the City of Castle Pines. “We look forward to welcoming new businesses to our community.”  

“Buxton is excited to begin working with the City of Castle Pines,” said Lisa McCay, vice president of Buxton’s public sector division. “We will provide the analytical support needed to make important development decisions.”  

Buxton has worked with more than 650 cities nationwide to implement retail development strategies. Client cities include Durango, Colorado; Indian Wells, California; Oak Park, Illinois and many others.
