City serves almost 13,000 people in its retail trade area

Mount Vernon may be small, but it has a far reaching retail trade area serving a population six times its size. A recent survey by The RetailCoach(R) reflects the residents that rely on retail businesses and services within the city.

The survey indicates that Mount Vernon businesses serve a population of 12,771. The study was commissioned by the Mount Vernon Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors. The goal of doing the survey was to define the market area and to be able to provide solid information to investors. For more data from the survey, see the July 18 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
