Potential Retail Jobs Coming to Prince George's County

Largo, MD -  On Sunday, May 17, 2015, Jim Coleman, President and CEO of the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation, (EDC) will lead its business development team to the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) for the annual RECon Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.  RECon is the largest global convention for the shopping center industry and provides networking, deal making and educational opportunities for retail real estate professionals from around the world. This four-day event will draw over 34,000 attendees and 1,000 exhibitors to the Las Vegas Convention Center from May 17 - 20, 2015.

"Our message is simply to attract quality retail business to Prince George's County", said EDC President Jim Coleman.  "Our presence at the ICSC Convention says that we are open for business and ready to work with retail real estate professionals from around the world. We will meet with scores of retailers to present the case for why Prince George's County is an outstanding choice for retail locations. We are moving the needle forward in attracting more quality restaurants, brand name grocery stores, entertainment venues, and the up-scale apparel that our residents have stated they want in our County".

As a result of the annual support from the local business community who sponsor EDC's participation at the RECon Convention, Prince George's County has been successful in luring Tanger Outlets, Famous Dave's Restaurant in the Blvd at the Cap Center, Rose's Department Store in Forestville, the soon to come Harris Teeter in Bowie Market Place and the recently announced Dave and Buster's at Ritchie Station. 

In this region, commercial development is an important factor in sustaining and improving the vitality of businesses and neighborhoods. The benefit of increased commercial development in Prince George's County not only provides the necessities and amenities for residential life, they also create jobs, expand the County's tax base and encourage and support sustainable career based learning for our youth.  The business deals and networking opportunities that will take place next week in Vegas will benefit our entire County.

As the Economic Development Corporation travels to the International Conference of Shopping Centers this year "What Happens in Vegas is Coming BACK to Prince George's County".
