The Role of Ontario City in Helping Develop Ontario’s Retail Market

Ontario has designated areas for new developments in a variety of industries. The City’s rising population gives infinite options for interacting with new clients or employing a great workforce as one of Southern California’s fastest-growing cities. There’s plenty of room and support for your development project in Opportunity Zones designated for various sectors.

Ontario is a retail wonderland with four separate metropolitan zones and a wide range of shopping options. Ontario Mills, California’s largest outlet and value retail shopping destination, attracts over 24 million visitors annually, introducing new clients to your store. Retail spaces, however, are plentiful throughout the city, allowing retail business owners to select an area that resonates with their target consumer base. Most retail options are found in mixed-use districts that include office space, residential units, and restaurants, allowing businesses to take advantage of the city’s walkability to attract new customers.
