Top Cities to Consider a Retail Expansion in 2023 and Beyond

Whether you’re a DTC brand looking to set up your first flagship or an established brand exploring expansion options, the right location matters nearly as much as the products you sell or the space you create. As we discussed in an earlier blog, success doesn’t come from simply setting up shop in Times Square or on the Magnificent Mile. Not only are these locations expensive, they might not reflect your market. Especially for DTC brands opening their first few stores, it’s better to find an affordable space with a built-in customer base. But that’s not all. In fact, a recent study from the non ..read more

Checkout-free technology is becoming more and more commonplace, with retailers of all stripes testing or deploying the technology. Despite slow uptake among more traditional retailers, the technology is ready for the big time, and it’s elevating the shopping experience in some very specific markets.

But we also mentioned two spaces where an unstaffed store would be ideal—university campuses and hotels. Why? Because they meet ..read more

To Mall, or Not to Mall. That is the Question.

Opening up shop in a shopping mall. It sounds like a terrible idea—right? After all, the experts predict that there may be as few as 150 malls a decade from now. But here’s the thing. Predictions are based on assumptions—and the assumption is that developers are going to take ‘the death of the shopping mall’ lying down. Yes, anchors have left or closed. Traditionally ‘on-mall’ retailers are looking off-mall. But mall owners are developing a new plan—that just so happens to look like the original creator’s vision for what a mall could be. But how did we get here? What’s next? And could your bra ..read more

Why Stores are Testing out New Sizes
Morgan Li Blog
by Steven D Kluber
10M ago
The pandemic changed the way that we shop. Two hour delivery used to be a pipedream or a big city exclusive. Pickup was inefficient. Curbside was nonexistent. But all this changed. Now, customers can get quick delivery from first-party services like Walmart or third-party apps. Items can be ready for pickup on a dime. Curbside is a reality.

For example, backrooms will be built for fulfillment instead of providing limited storage. Bigger or smaller ..read more
