FORT WORTH, TEXAS, (November 22, 2016) – Clark County, OH has recently partnered with Fort Worth-based Buxton to support the community’s retail attraction efforts.

“We’re thrilled to use Buxton’s analytics to help us recruit new retail and restaurants,” said Tom Hale, community and economic development director of Clark County. “With their help, we can implement a retail recruitment strategy that improves the quality of life for our residents.”
