Retail/Office Wish List

While downtown welcomes investors and businesses of all sorts, with the help of retail consultants we have identified recruitment strategies that we are actively pursuing. These are retail and office opportunities.


Recruit additional retail to downtown Vinton focusing on:

  • Lawn/garden centers with a focus on quality annuals, perennials and vegetable plants; lawn and garden products and amenities and any other related services.
  • Food related retail especially those offering alternatives to big boxes, gourmet or unique foods and/or spices or with a specialty focus.
  • Clothing retailers that supplement and add to the collection of clothing stores currently in the town.


Our downtown is actively seeking office businesses. We would like to complement our retail with additional professional services and offices. These businesses could occupy upper story space or storefront space. Among the business sectors that are best supported by our local workforce are:

  • Information Technology Businesses
  • Professional Offices
  • Nonprofit Organizations
  • Service Businesses
