ABERDEEN - The results of a retail market study commissioned by the city of Aberdeen will be presented on Thursday.

The Aberdeen American News reports that the city has been working with Buxton Co. to evaluate the city's current retail market and find ways to grow the Aberdeen marketplace.

The Fort Worth, Texas-based company says it has conducted similar research for more than 350 communities in 30 states and has access to data that is not readily available to the general public.

The survey results will be unveiled to the public from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ramkota Convention Center. A networking social will follow.
