Cell Phone Tower Helps Fund New Supermarket
A small Texas town was in need of a market as the closest was 20 minutes away. Thanks to a carrier’s $157,000 lease prepayment for a water tower cell site that Md7 negotiated with the city, there’s now a new grocery store in town. The city used the upfront cash to retrofit an abandoned store, which attracted a quality grocery chain to take up residence. The prepayment was an opportunity to give the city a downtown facelift and provide residents with a much-needed service without spending taxpayer dollars.
