so it's been in the news for a while about all the retail stores closing doors, what do you suspect will happen to all the commercial properties in the coming years? Apartments? section 8's?

 

saw a figure today nearly 6,000 retail stores have closed this year, surpassing last years 5800 stores in just 4 months. Will amazon just become one giant monopoly for shopping?

 

Online sales make up around 16% of retail sales today, but they will rise to 25% by 2026, UBS analysts estimated in a research report last week.

That could force up to 75,000 stores to close by 2026, including more than 20,000 clothing stores and about 10,000 consumer electronics stores,

I could never wrap my head around the construction of strip malls in my area.

so many empty spaces in existing units,

and so much new construction.

we had a space near us, was a former Pathmark it's taken 3-4 years for the owners to find businesses to move in, they have now finally found tenants it will become a Gym and another supermarket. but for most "Retail" type establishments that products can be purchased online & sight unseen the future is dismal

On the one hand it's sad. On the other hand, I haven't been in a B&M store in two years, other than tackle shops and grocery stores.

just wondering what will happen to the spaces as businesses move out and new business doesn't move in, be nice if they went back to open spaces or local farming but thats unlikely
