Maryland's malls and shopping centers are filled with a variety of stores catering to a wide array of consumers. Some stores target the young, urban teenager while others target the chic executive. Oftentimes, retailers are in competition for the same business. Recently, Men's Wearhouse expanded by buying a business well-known to many retail consumers.
The state of Maryland is conveniently located amid a variety of government entities and businesses that service other government locations. The majority of new businesses in the area are designed to work with these government entities or contractors. Throughout the course of business, the need for working capital in order to honor new contracts or provide payroll can become an issue. A new business in the Maryland area, Hitachi Government Finance, has been created to assist in these endeavors.
