Title: Changes in Retail Sales, Population, and Pull Factors, 1980 and 1986; Summary of County, City, and Trade Area Characteristics
Author: Leistritz, F. Larry; Mortensen, Timothy L.
Description: The article centers itself of the time period of 1980-86 in North Dakota in retail sales, populations and in factors that affect revenue. These factors 'pull factors' are influenced by transportation infrastructure, population characteristics, income levels of the population, changing consumer taste and how agriculture and energy demand and prices. When trade diminishes, it results in stressful situations for smaller rural centers in North Dakota. At a certain point when sales continue to slip, business are forced to close their doors. When the local market continues to decline and to close, consumers are forced to go elsewhere for their needs. This attrition of keeping retail moneys local further drains the local economy. Some areas have been able to maintain or to increase their market share. However, this may be at the cost of another community.
