The Retail Report helps to identify trends in retail, and can be predictive of future successes and challenges. The information it provides is invaluable for retailers, the industries that service retail and government planners alike. Franklin County is now the largest county in Ohio with our metro area being the fastest growing in the Midwest. The economic landscape continues to change throughout the country and our growth provides both challenges and opportunities. The Retail Report guides us to plan deliberately for the economic growth we want to see in our county, the region and the Midwest.
The Retail Report 2017 will be presented by Jim Schimmer who enjoys more than 20 years of senior leadership and management experience in economic development.
