Retail Ready

The Jacksonville Economic Development Corporation (JEDCO) recognizes the important role retailers and restaurants play in providing local goods, services, and job opportunities. As the largest city (by population) in Cherokee County, Jacksonville serves as the restaurant and retail hub.

From our historic downtown featuring specialty retailers, antiques, and famously good food, to the thriving Highway 69 commercial corridor, Jacksonville offers something for everyone.

JEDCO staff members are prepared to work with commercial brokers, developers, and investors as you navigate the local retail landscape.
