Business and Retail

The 1990s saw a spurt in retail growth with the Trussville Shopping Center on Chalkville Mountain Road emerging as the first of several retail venues anchored by “big box” stores. The Colonial Promenade and Colonial Tutwiler Farm centers came in the early 2000s and the upscale Pinnacle at Tutwiler Farm in 2006. Other retail options include the family-owned businesses and specialty shops of the downtown area.

In 1999, the Trussville Senior Citizens’ Activities Center opened and has since provided diversions ranging from dominoes to dancing for Trussville’s senior population. The facility also hosts community meetings, classes and other gatherings.


By the time the 21st century arrived, Trussville was booming in earnest. Businesses were springing up everywhere, and numerous residential developments appeared, seemingly overnight. And along with the development came people. Estimates for 2014 put Trussville’s population in the 20,000 range, compared to around 12,000 in 2000.

In the meantime, Trussville’s non-retail business community was growing, too. The city is remarkable for its sizable number of financial institutions and manufacturing companies, many of which conduct business on an international level.
