Recruiting Retail to Grant County

Posted on May 29, 2015

Representatives from Moses Lake, Quincy, Ephrata, and Soap Lake accompanied the Grant County Economic Development Council to Las Vegas for the third time to attend the annual Retail Real Estate Convention or RECon.

“We were very excited to represent and showcase how diverse our area is this year,” said Emily Braunwart, Business Recruitment Manager for the EDC. “The members of our delegation met with retail companies, talked to developers, and learned best practices from other cities.”

Team members were able to speak with companies such as: Sports Clips, Panda Express, Planet Fitness, Amazing Lash, Panera Bread, Bass Pro Shop and many more.

“Going to RECon is about building relationships and marketing our communities,” said Braunwart. “Every year we’re able to share how rapidly the Grant County economy is growing and why we’re the next place these retailers should locate.”
