Creating this list was an exercise I thought worth the time and effort. I wondered what a comprehensive list of Internet immune, or should I say “less immune”, retail looked like in today’s world. For this effort, I did not include restaurants.
We all need to be cognizant of who we represent, the tenants we call for space, and the tenants who occupy retail properties. Tenant mix has always been very important, however it’s more important now than ever.
With technology, the rate of change in our world is becoming faster and faster. Therefore, our business will be dramatically different 5 years from now. I’m not here to say it will be either good or bad. We simply need to be shifting, adjusting, and finding new opportunities.
I hope this list helps. What would you change or add?
Special thanks to some of the Retail Brokers Network members who contributed to this list.
