Is race a driver or mitigating factor in retail location decisions? The webinar will summarize findings of a two year Retail Investment Study conducted in the south suburbs of Chicago (Olympia Fields, Matteson, Park Forest, and Richton Park) that examined reasons, including race, for the lack of Class A retail and restaurant establishments in local communities. The session will summarize the extensive research effort undertaken to evaluate the complex retail decision making process, and focus on solutions to address existing challenges and work cooperatively to provide the shopping and dining opportunities desired by residents.
