Retailers Icon Invest in the Village of ClintonTargeted Retailers

Niche Retail


The Village of Clinton presents several strengths that would support niche retail investment:

  • The most obvious advantage for Clinton is its existing antiques cluster, which is already drawing in shoppers from around the region including the Lower Mainland.

  • One of Clinton’s greatest strengths is the volume of highway traffic on Highway 97—the large majority of travellers heading to BC’s northern interior pass through the community. Being on a major highway corridor allows residents from outside the immediate area to access specialty retailers in Clinton’s downtown.

  • Clinton also attracts many hunters, anglers and other outdoor recreation enthusiasts. It thus has good potential for a tourist retail niche that can complement the antiques cluster.

  • The Village can immediately accommodate potential businesses interested in locating in the downtown area where there is available retail space.
