WINTER OVER; ‘ADAPT’ & ‘CHANGE’ WATCHWORDS FOR GROWTH

Released at ICSC RECon this week, the newest U.S. Retail report highlights key economic geographic and technological trends that are fueling demand for retail real estate.

Key Takeaways

> Negative economic impact of frigid winter weather was temporary and overblown

> Strongest retail sales growth tied to ICEE, coastal/inland port markets, manufacturing centers benefiting from ‘onshoring’

> Online sales growth continues; retailers must adapt to changing consumer expectations

> Online is not the end of brick-and-mortar; retailers accepting and innovating in multi-channel service

> Technology will alter retail space over long term: 3-D printing, kiosk/self-serve retail, increasing base of services offered online

> Investor demand expanding to secondary and tertiary markets; but well-located, high-quality assets likely to remain in favor
