Business Retention

Retain the local businesses in your community by attracting the right retailers and restaurants.


As city leaders know, a thriving retail sector is vital to the overall health of a community. While a big part of maintaining a growing business community includes recruiting the right retailers for your city, an equally important mission is business retention—keeping existing retailers and restaurants in your business community.


What will the Business Retention solution do for me?

Provide market intelligence for business retention.

Buxton can provide market intelligence to optimize merchandising and marketing for existing retailers.

Assist businesses with local store marketing.

As communities aid existing retailers in their marketing efforts, those retailers will be more likely to stay and expand in your community. When you work with Buxton, you have access to LSMx, our local store marketing tool.

Ensure employment of residents.

Retail retention will provide jobs and strengthen economic development for your community’s residents.

Help create community culture.

Specific retailers and restaurants often become an important part of a community’s culture. By working to retain such retail establishments, you are maintaining your relationship with important community partners.
