The retail sector in Pasadena is booming, with much of it centered around the Beltway 8 Corridor. High local demand has driven retail sales to its’ highest levels, with Pasadena stores often outperforming locations in nearby Houston. In addition to serving local residents, Pasadena retailers see a significant revenue boost from clients coming in from the port. Ship workers visit stores by the busload to purchase supplies and goods from U.S. retailers. Combined, this has created an incredible opportunity for local and national retailers who wish to expand their footprint and capitalize on a thriving Texas market.
