BIRMINGHAM, AL (January 2, 2020) – Retail Strategies, the leading retail recruitment firm, has partnered with Carlsbad, New Mexico, the city known as The Pearl on the Pecos, to expand and support the city’s retail development initiatives. Carlsbad is primed for retail growth as the city experiences a growing economy due in part to the oil boom of the Delaware Basin region. Carlsbad is the county seat of Eddy County and has the fastest growing economy in the state.

“We look forward to partnering with Retail Strategies to accumulate and categorize the necessary information to do the best possible job promoting Carlsbad and South Eddy County,” said Craig Stephens, president of the board for the Carlsbad Department of Development.

They begin with an in-depth study of our Community, then categorize the information in a concise, understandable format. This information will be updated on a periodic basis and delivered to local, regional, and national developers by us and by the Retail Strategies team. They have the contacts and reputation to open doors and have developers sit up and take notice of our Community.”

“Carlsbad has been doing a great job crafting their story to tell commercial development and retail professionals,” said Lacy Beasley, president of Retail Strategies. “Our team will be able to take that story and tell it at a national level, leveraging our network of real estate professionals. The Southwest region is a hot market right now, and we look forward to bringing new concepts to Carlsbad.”

Through the new partnership, Retail Strategies will perform a real estate market analysis of the businesses located in Carlsbad and identify areas of opportunity with expanding businesses. The Retail Strategies team will work hand in hand with city leaders to help them understand their market and real estate. Most importantly, the team at Retail Strategies will proactively reach out to potential businesses, property owners, brokers, and developers on behalf of the city.

My relationship with the Retail Strategies team has been extremely valuable over the last couple of years as I’ve searched for sites in the Southeast. They have been persistent and provided any information they could gather for available properties that fit my criteria. If they received news that a space was coming available they made sure to immediately give me a call and connect with the owners. I would recommend using this service to any of my colleagues looking in their client cities.
