Marketing consultant Arnett Muldrow & Associates Ltd. of Greenville will present findings from a retail market analysis of downtown Beaufort at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Dolphin Room at the Best Western Sea Island Inn, 1015 Bay St.

Main Street Beaufort, USA, commissioned the study. The presentation "is part of a larger initiative to understand the current state of retail in downtown and to devise strategies to encourage future economic growth in the district," according to a news release.

The study included interviews, an online survey with almost 900 participants, and about 5,000 customer visits recorded by 51 downtown merchants during a weeklong zip code survey of customers conducted in May.
