If any industry knows the benefits of a prime location, it's retail. Therefore, it shouldn't be too surprising to learn that when the National Association for Retail Marketing Services (NARMS) decided to relocate its headquarters to Colorado, they did so in order to capitalize on the geographic advantages of the state.
NARMS International Executive Director Tom Caddell chose Broomfield, Colorado, as the organization's new site because Denver, which is only a few miles away, is turning into a major hub for corporate headquarters, especially in the retailing, manufacturing and all-natural food industries, according to the group's website.
The office will initially house only three employees, but there are hopes that it will soon expand, according to the Broomfield Enterprise.
"As the association grows, there may be opportunities," Fiona Lipscomb, director of member relations and communications, told the news source.
The news of the relocation comes hot on the heels of another large corporation moving to the area - Mrs. Field's Famous Brands, the national cookie producer, announced in early June they were setting up shop in Broomfield.
Although it will only be relocating a few employees initially, moving out of state is complicated for any business. Hiring professional corporate relocation companies can keep the process simple and ensure that businesses get the most out of their new location.
