Marketplace Minute

Post Date:05/03/2019 2:00 PM
Welcome to Marketplace Minute, a new recurring feature in Up Front that aims to inform and educate readers on economic development news in our City. We’ll cover a wide range of topics from business openings to the importance of sales tax to zoning basics and much more through short stories and video. 

It isn’t a secret anymore that new residents are choosing to move to our city for top-notch schools, outstanding public safety and unmatched quality of life. This also applies to retail shops and restaurants, which are constantly popping up throughout our five economic development districts. These new businesses add to our unique (often one-of-a-kind) shopping and dining experiences. For example, Trader Joe’s opened its doors in Germantown in September of 2018 and became a regional destination. Prior to opening its doors in Germantown, the closest Trader Joe’s was located 201 miles away in Nashville.  

Germantown has a diverse collection of dining options within the City’s 20 square miles, everything from white tablecloth to fast casual to ethnic cuisine. Within the last three years, 30 new restaurants that have opened or have been announced. (Photo courtesy of Alex Ginsburg Photography)
