Retail

Young, Hip and Hungry. That’s how to best describe Arlington’s growing Millennial population. After all, we have the fastest-growing number of 25-34 year olds in the nation. And they're smart: more than 70% of adult Arlingtonians have at least a bachelor’s degree. They're social, and have great jobs. That means they’re looking for great places to hang out, shop and dine. And Arlington delivers. With hundreds of retail shopping opportunities spanning the highest designer brands to funky local boutiques and cuisine and nightlife options that span the globe, Arlington’s a hotspot for retailers. The market’s growing, and now’s the time to be a part of it.

24% growth in 25-34 year olds since 2000
