Open a Business
The DCA implements a recruitment program based out of the ERA 2007 Merchandising Mix study and the 2012 Gibbs study. Using these concepts, our team of recruiters have used the momentum of Carlisle’s success to drive our vacancy rate to its lowest point in years.
Embedded within the retail recruitment program, is a retail retention program whereby we network with local businesses and offer management or marketing assistance when an individual business is struggling or the same management or marketing assistance and financial assistance when an entrepreneur is poised to expand within their C-1 business. This list contains a host of information including property owner contact information, square footage, space amenities and more. Our recruiters can make an appointment to tour available spaces or connect you directly with the property owner. Acting as a guide through either process, our retail recruiter would identify needs and solutions for the business owner. These solutions are countless but could include managerial training from local mentors up to the Small Business Development Corporation, direction to fiscal assistance from local, state, federal or private dollars, navigation through local and county building or business expansion codes.
