Economists McConnon, Gabe Discuss Ellsworth Retail Growth

The news website Fenceviewer, an affiliate of the Ellsworth American, reported on a presentation before an Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting by University of Maine economists Jim McConnon, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension specialist and professor of economics, and Todd Gabe, a UMaine School of Economics researcher and faculty member. They discussed Ellsworth’s 2012 first-quarter retail growth of 6.2 percent over last year’s first quarter, and noted that the improvement mirrors what’s been happening throughout Maine this year.
