Retail Initiative

The City of Covington is home to notable retailers such as Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Ingles Market, McDonald’s, Burger King, CVS Pharmacy, and Rite Aid. These retailers are listed on the 2010 U.S. Top 100 Fastest Growing Retailers List – reflecting the City of Covington’s growing population and growing retail consumer base. Georgia residents and visitors enjoy shopping in historic downtown Covington which offers a luxurious day spa as well as many antique, apparel, and gift stores. Because of Covington’s growing population, recent years have brought a return of residential options to the downtown area. In addition to Newton County’s thriving retail accomplishments, the newest Community Improvement District (CID) in Georgia is now located on Highway 278. Now, the 26th CID in the state, the Highway 278 CID encompases over 3 miles of commercial businesses that are unique staples within the community. Learn more about the Highway 278 CID here.
