Retail South

Retail- an asset class that is shrouded in uncertainty. While the economy is strong, and getting stronger in 2018 there are potentially +25 at-risk retailers that could file for bankruptcy.  

 

As vacant storefronts blight communities, cities and landlords are searching for solutions that will fill those spaces, whether through punitive fees on the owners of vacant sites or through creative approaches, such as pop-ups or new lease terms.

 

While retail is most certainly not dead, we are seeing a strategic shift in the marketplace. While e-commerce continues to increase in popularity, retailers are beginning to downsize and as they search the optimal amount of brick and mortar stores. We are also seeing retailers utilize an omnichannel strategy as they strive to stay competitive in the market and gain the loyalty of millennials.  

 

Join us in September as we take a dive into the industry and cover key themes that the industry is seeing today. Could new retail construction become strongest in mix-use categories?  How do retailers accommodate the growing popularity and demand of offering new and creative experiences to their clientele? How can brands capitalize on social media? What does the outlook look like in 2018 and beyond for tenants? 

 

Join Bisnow at our Bisnow's National Retail South Event for a full day stocked with hard-hitting content from some of the nation's top retail execs. Don't miss the key players discussing these trends and more!
