In 2017 retail and ground floor mixed-use properties underwent an overhaul in the public eye. It was clear that several large tenants and active developers & investors were looking for a spark.
Walk down any major retail corridor and you’ll be amazed at how many retailers and mixed-use properties are using ingenuity to help attract customers.
“If you're not great at what you do in retail, you're going to die," Walmart VP of Real Estate JP Suarez stated at a recent CREW event. Innovation and sound business models are key, but questions still remain on how to survive the "Retail Apocalypse."
With retail and ground floor mixed-use there is the common pursuit of perfecting the customer experience. How can retailers create an enjoyable experience for customers while they spend their money? How can retailers continue to attract new customers? Will food halls be a central feature in new mixed-use projects?
