The New Ulm City Council decided to hire Retail Strategies at Tuesday’s meeting. Retail Strategies is a retail real estate company that performs retail market analysis and business attraction services. The company’s representative Justin Lindsey said they are currently partnering with both Rosemont and Albert Lea, and feel that New Ulm has a strong market with good momentum. They have 12 professionals that would be on New Ulm’s team. Councilor Les Schultz said that he’s happy that multiple organizations are working together to cover the costs, including the EDA, the City, New Ulm Economic Development Corporation, and the Chamber.
