Advisors: Jim Burnell, Huiting Tian

The clients, Main Street Wooster and the Wayne Economic Development Council, sought to better understand the retail market in Downtown Wooster and Downtown Orrville by assessing the retail leakage. The team, therefore, conducted a retail gap analysis to determine which major business groups and subsectors registered leakage using data provided by the Buxton Company. An inventory of commercial building spaces in Downtown Wooster was also created by sourcing data from real estate websites, Wayne County auditor’s website, and the City of Wooster’s data files. The team also reached out to downtown building owners to obtain information about vacancies and potential uses.
