Psychographics


Shawnee is a retailer’s paradise with many opportunities. North Star Destination Strategies was hired by the City of Shawnee to review the community tapestry to discover new opportunities. North Star researches communities across the nation and specializes in city marketing and branding strategies. After reviewing Shawnee, North Star found that residents here live a considerable “high life” as compared to other communities. In fact, what the agency dubbed as “High Society” was found to be Shawnee’s largest market. This segment of the population included affluent and educated family households. It is the wealthiest consumer market, representing less than 1% of all U.S. households. Amazingly, the “High Society” segment makes up 53.8% of the Shawnee population, compared to 16.6% of the Kansas City population. North Star listed several traits connected to the Shawnee population that may interest potential retailers. They included:

  • This population leads a lifestyle that is characterized with a higher discretionary income.
  • Their median household income, more than $170,000, and median net worth, $464,000,
    are four times the national medians.
  • They frequently purchased new apparel for work and play.
  • They own “extras” in home appliances such as multiple TVs, gaming systems, computers, appliances and more.
  • They make home improvements annually and take care of their lawn and garden.
  • They shop at upscale and value-oriented stores (The Limited, Nordstrom, Eddie Bauer, Banana Republic, Starbucks AND TJ Maxx, Sam’s Club and Target).
  • They eat out frequently at family-friendly and casual dining restaurants (Don Pablo’s, Chik-fil-a, Red Robin, Chili’s, Cheesecake Factory and more).
  • They drive SUVs, luxury cars and Jeeps.
  • They enjoy reading, photography, golf, tennis, running, hiking, drinking wine and beer.
  • They are concerned with health and exercise frequently.
