Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III Welcomed and Attended the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Mid-Atlantic and Deal Making Conference

 

Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III enthusiastically welcomed the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) attendees to Prince George’s County during the Mid-Atlantic Conference and Deal Making luncheon.

“If you have come here looking for opportunity, you are in the right place, at the right time,” said Baker during day one of the conference.  “There is tremendous opportunity here in Prince George’s County and we want to be your business partners.”

Founded in 1957, the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) is the global trade association of the shopping center industry.  Its 60,000 members in the U.S., Canada and more than 80 other countries include shopping center owners, developers, managers, marketing specialists, investors, lenders, retailers and other professionals as well as academics and public officials. As the global industry trade association, ICSC links with more than 25 national and regional shopping center councils throughout the world.

County Executive Baker acknowledged that retailers continue to face tough times and that Prince George’s County stands ready to do business and meet the on-going demands by residents for high quality shopping venues.

“Not only will you grow here, we have underutilized hubs waiting to explode such as our 15 metro stations,” touted Baker.  “We are excited about some big changes that will be underway for our New Carrollton Metro Station and this is just the beginning of our mixed use development plans.

During day two of the conference, County Executive Baker made stops at concurrent sessions and networked with prospective retailers. 

“My Administration is ready to move our county to the next level of greatness, and the retail community can and will play an important role in helping us achieve this goal,” said Baker.

Business seems to be booming in Prince George's County which recently celebrated the grand opening of luxury grocery store Wegmans, a Red Robin in Bowie Town Center, and most recently a TGI Fridays in District Heights.

"This goes to show that Prince George's County is not to be underrated," says Frankie Lauro, a resident of Bowie, Md. "We used to have to go to Montgomery County to do this kind of shopping. I'm glad I can now do it at home, it's finally here."
