Downtown retail and development will be the focus of the next Breakfast Bites Wednesday, June 14. The quarterly event is sponsored by the Georgetown Economic Development Department and features current downtown topics and trends.
Jason Claunch, principal and CEO of Catalyst, will present on the retail merchandising strategy for downtown. The downtown strategy goes beyond retail and touches on other areas of development for downtown.
The City of Georgetown Economic Development Department worked with Catalyst to complete the Retail Strategy and Recruitment Plan last year. The Plan includes analysis of the retail environment in Georgetown, including the downtown district, and an implementation plan.
