Friday is RSVP deadline for our June 21 "State of Commerce/Retail" Lunch!

Friday is the deadline to register for next week's "State of Commerce/Retail" Lunch being held at Ashley Park. Continuing with our popular “State of Community” Lunch Series launched last year, our “State of Commerce/Retail” Lunch will be Wednesday, June 21, 2017 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the former Jos. A. Bank store at 376 Newnan Crossing Bypass in Ashley Park.

A panel discussion will be moderated by Assistant City Manager Hasco Craver of the City of Newnan, and the speakers will include Ashley Park General Manager Mark Curran, Senior Project Manager Retail-Commercial Guy (Mill) Graves with Electric Cities of Georgia, Senoia Downtown Development Authority Chairman Suzanne Helfman and Main Street Newnan Manager Courtney Harcourt.

Among the topics to be covered: How today's retail scene is more "science" than "art"; what Millennials are looking for when they shop and dine; how e-commerce is affecting today's brick-and-mortar stores; why some stores have closed while others remain in business; and how downtowns are different from today's "power centers" like Ashley Park — and why we need both.

The “State of Commerce/Retail” Lunch on June 21 is sponsored by Newnan CEO, Coweta-Fayette EMC and Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Registration for the lunch is $35 for Chamber Members and their guests and $50 for General Admission. For more information, call 770-253-2270. To register now through ChamberMaster, click here.
