Company hired to pitch Grenada to retailers

Staff Writer

A Monday night vote entered the city into a relationship with a Memphis company in hopes of attracting top retailers to the city.

Behind a 6-1 vote, the city council approved a professional service agreement with NaviRetail, LLC, the organization that met with city leaders last month in hopes of reaching out to national retailers.

The council voted to take City Manager Trey Baker’s recommendation to allow NaviRetail to market Grenada.

The move will cost around $10,000.

Ward Two City Councilman Fredreick “Pete” Wilson made the motion to accept Baker’s recommendation, and Ward Five City Councilman Joshua Hughes seconded the motion.

Ward Three Councilman Lewis Johnson, Ward Four Councilman Ernest Hargrove, Ward Six Councilman Larry Vance and Ward Seven Councilman Ronnie Merriman also voted in favor.

Ward One City Councilman Warren Cox was the lone vote against the measure.
