BIRMINGHAM, AL (August 7, 2023) – The Pflugerville, Texas Community Development Corporation (PCDC) has selected Retail Strategies, a leading community and retail development firm, as its new partner to bring retail to the community. The newly formed relationship will help attract new retailers, stimulate economic development, and bolster the retail environment in Pflugerville.

“We are excited to bring Retail Strategies on board for our retail economic development partner,” said Amy Madison, Executive Director of PCDC.

“Their extensive connections in the commercial real estate industry and with retailers will be invaluable in attracting top-notch businesses to our area. Their positive reputation with the retail brokerage community in the state of Texas gives us the confidence and assurance that we are partnering with a team that truly understands the market and can deliver exceptional results.”

“Pflugerville is in one of the fastest-growing areas in the state, and our team is ready to capitalize on its retail market potential,” said Christopher Bontrager, Western Region Vice President for Retail Strategies. “We believe that Pflugerville will continue to evolve and become a dynamic retail destination that caters to the diverse needs of its residents and visitors alike.”

The city is already home to a number of popular retailers, including Costco, Hobby Lobby, and Target. In recent years, there has been a surge of new developments in the city with the emergence of new hotels and stores in the vibrant Stone Hill Town Center, which is a mixed-use development with retail, office, and residential space.

Retail Strategies will perform both a consumer data analysis and a real estate market analysis to identify the custom retail trade area and build a target retail and restaurant list that match opportunities in the market. After an in-market visit, Retail Strategies will proactively reach out to potential retailers, property owners, brokers and developers on behalf of the city and represent the city at ICSC and Retail Live conferences.

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.
