Retail Coach identifies potential growth
Findings from a collaborative study by the Ennis Economic Development Corporation and the consulting firm The Retail Coach showed local residents Thursday detailed shopping habits of Ennis area citizens as well as potential room for growth.
A Gap/Opportunity Analysis showed Ennis is “leaking” $217 million per year in annual sales to outside communities. Further examination into those details showed exactly where Ennis stands to grow if efforts are put towards recruiting those specific types of retailers, something Economic Development Coordinator Marty Nelson said the city will commit to soon.
