The City of Apache Junction, Arizona, recently partnered with Fort Worth-based Buxton to enhance its retail and tourism development strategies. Through Buxtons advanced customer analytics, City leaders will better understand the shopping and dining preferences of both residents and visitors.

Understanding the shopping and dining preferences of both residents and visitors will give Apache Junction critical insights for future growth, said Janine Hanna Solley, economic development principal with the City of Apache Junction. We look forward to enhancing our retail and tourism industries.
