“Shopping Local is one of the best things we can do for our community. Much of the community is solely supported by sales and property taxes generated from the businesses right here in South Denver. Not everyone knows that many Park Meadows retailers and restaurants are local franchises or owned by your neighbors here in Colorado. By employing over 5,000 residents, we take pride in offering everything from entry level jobs to full time careers. In addition, we continue to contract building, remodeling, the overall operations and facility contracts from primarily Colorado vendors. When you choose to shop at Park Meadows, you choose to support your community.”
