Retail Development

Gainesville-Hall County is the regional center for financial and medical services, so it makes sense to serve as a retail hub for Georgia as well. The Greater Hall Chamber facilitates partnerships between government and developers and supports development with timely and accurate information.

Area demographics play a large role in selecting a retail development location. The Greater Hall Chamber retail initiative effort serves to:

  • Enhance the quality of life
  • Complement Gainesville-Hall County’s position as a tourism destination
  • Diversify the tax base and economy
  • Attract sales tax dollars to support education & infrastructure initiatives
