Pearl River, LA
If you have not been through Pearl River lately, you will not believe your eyes. Pearl River has become the fastest growing economic engine in St. Tammany Parish. From I-59 into the city limits, buildings are growing and business is booming.
Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG) is the most recent groundbreaking business in the area with a 68 acre site which will include 720,000 square feet of space. Brenda Reine Bertus, executive Director of the STEDF commented “We are thrilled to have played a role in bringing this project to St. Tammany Parish, and look forward to the short and long term positive economic impact it will have on our communities.”
Since the new grocery store, fast food restaurants, gas stations, the new Microtel Hotel, Waffle House, Rooms2Go and the newest addition, Rotollo’s Pizzeria, making your way to the Honey Island Swamp could take a while.
The East St. Tammany Chamber is honored to work with the businesses in Pearl River to promote economic development success for the entire region.
