Kirksville has a very healthy Retail Economy. Unlike many communities who are constantly losing retail businesses, our retail environment is one that is very robust and growing. Our downtown area has an occupancy rate that exceeds 90% and our business turnover is very minimal.
Downtown retail businesses often upgrade their facilities, so you never see run-down buildings like you do in many places. Our business owners are very good at keeping their storefronts looking good and very clean.
The outlook in our community is very positive and this leads to a very stable retail business environment. Several large retail chains are located here. This list includes, but is not limited to the following:
- Home Depot
- J.C. Penny
and many more.
