Report: Businesses should connect main shopping districts - Gazette

by Jeremy Arias | Staff Writer | Wednesday, March 25, 2009

While businesses in Takoma Park do an admirable job of cashing in on a unique specialty market, more can be done to connect the main shopping districts and increase the attractiveness of the city as a unit, according to a Washington, D.C.-based market specialist.

While the city has some anchor stores that help draw shoppers to surrounding establishments, they are too spread out and insufficiently advertised to have the desired effect, according to Randall Gross, an economic consultant hired by the Old Takoma Business Association to compile a retail market analysis of the city.
