RES Gives Retail Market Data Workshop at LISC

With funding from the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and State Farm, RES has assisted six of LISC’s Philadelphia commercial corridor grantees by preparing detailed retail market analyses, marketing materials to use in business attraction efforts, and a detailed data package for reference and distribution to both new prospects and existing businesses considering expansion. On April 27, RES led a half-day workshop to help corridor managers understand how to use these materials to develop corridor strategies and attract targeted retailers. The workshop was attended by the six corridor managers as well as representatives of the City Commerce Department, the Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations and LISC’s national office.
