The City of Coshocton’s downtown retail community includes department stores, both women’s and men’s clothing shops, several shoe stores, jewelry stores, a health food store, and a number of casual and fine dining restaurants. At the center of the downtown on a one block square with well-maintained trees and lawn is a beautiful, courthouse built in 1875.
There are three retail areas in the City of Coshocton which include the Historic Towne Centre, Historic Roscoe Village, and the Downtowner Plaza. The city has two regionally owned grocery outlets and one national chain grocery. One regionally owned grocer has its corporate headquarters in Coshocton.
A Heritage Ohio Main Street program is being developed which is aimed at revitalizing historic commerce areas. The downtown area underwent a major upgrade in the 80’s and the Main Street Program will serve to polish that upgrade. The Downtowner Plaza is almost fully leased with several national retail chain stores, restaurants, a movie theater, and plenty of parking. Outlying villages have limited retail outlets, a major sporting goods store that draws shoppers from several states is located within the city, and there is a Super WalMart on the outskirts of Coshocton.
