Through this grant, NWAEDD will partner with Retail Strategies, LLC to offer the Retail Academy course to six communities across Northwest Arkansas. Developed by Retail Strategies, Retail Academy educates communities on best practices to attract new retail and restaurants while providing resources to support and grow existing local businesses.
