Gregg Gorsuch, economic development manager for Kettering, said: “We are actually seeing the retail sector pretty strong in the city of Kettering right now. I think two good examples of that are Fountain Square on Far Hills Avenue and the Kettering Towne Center over on Dorothy and Woodman.”
Gorsuch explained that both of those centers have been purchased by local investors and business people.
“I think that speaks to the strength of retail in the city of Kettering when our local investors want to put their money in projects in the city of Kettering,” he said.
