Hickman County: Wide-Open Opportunity

Being located in a community with major retail outlets in surrounding counties, leads to retail leakage.

Leakage means there are opportunities for those retail businesses willing to fill the gaps or leaks. Plugging the leaks results in substantially greater tax receipts which makes improvements to the schools and infrastructure easier. There are opportunities for local "Shop Local" campaigns. 

The costs of driving to Dickson, Columbia, Hohenwald. or Fairview may exceed the savings of finding lower costs of products outside Hickman County when all factors are considered, not including extra travel time. The benefit is perceived as a greater selection of products and the convenience of shopping in a big-box store like Walmart. Often, consumers are not aware of products that can be purchased locally at a competitive price.
