FORT WORTH, TEXAS, (June 22, 2016) — The City of Wichita Falls, Texas, has partnered with consumer analytics and retail consulting firm Buxton to develop a targeted retail recruitment plan. Buxton’s retail matching process will identify the retailers that best match the lifestyles of residents and complement existing retail in the trade area.
“Wichita Falls is a wonderful place to live and work,” said Darron Leiker, city manager of Wichita Falls. “We look forward to seeing the results of Buxton’s analysis and using those insights to strengthen our retail sector for residents.”
While retail economic development programs have traditionally relied on basic demographic information, Wichita Falls’ retail attraction program is utilizing consumer insights that go beyond demographics, presenting a convincing case to retailers seeking growth opportunities. Buxton’s proprietary web-based real estate platform, SCOUT®, gives city leaders the ability to analyze retail matches, support existing retailers and optimize development decisions.
“Achieving the right retail mix is an ongoing process for communities,” said Lisa McCay, senior vice president of sales in Buxton’s city government division. “Buxton looks forward to working with Wichita Falls and supporting development efforts.”
Buxton has worked with more than 700 cities nationwide to implement retail development strategies. Client cities in Texas include Sugar Land, Waxahachie, North Richland Hills, and many others.
