CHARLOTTE, NC — More shopping in Uptown Charlotte!  That’s one of the key components in a vision plan for the City Center.  Charlotte City Center Partners is looking to recruit and develop more retail outlets in Uptown and South End.  Chris Hemans is the new director of retail, tasked with coordinating public and private stakeholders to create a thriving retail environment in Uptown.

“Identify where those needs are to work with the communities to understand what they’d like to see more of in our downtown.  And then go out there and hopefully recruit those needs, recruit those retailers,” said CCP Director of Retail Chris Hemans.

Hemans has worked for the City of Charlotte in business recruitment and for the City of Chicago, managing their retail program.
