Today’s retail environment is also rapidly changing, which has led to some of the high profile stores being closed.

This has led to the negative impact in the business domain. However, the investors note other thriving segments in which they aim to venture.

One of the most diverse businesses in the commercial real estate is retailing.

One of the significant reasons as to why it is termed by Steve Shanahan as the most bifurcated business is its possession of distinct subsets. These perform well thus pushing the market successively regarding value and price. However, there are a few setbacks with retailing which is what led some entrepreneurs considering investing in other asset types. To understand the retail businesses better, RCM conducted a survey in May 2018 where it analyzed the U.S. database with information concerning the various retail investors in the country. According to this survey, it was found that the Anchored Shopping Centers were the most sought-after retail investment by businesspeople.

In comparison to the 2017 statistics, the grocery-anchored centers’ preference margin grew greater. Although the grocery retail businesses face many challenges which include setbacks in online orderings and the meal preparation concepts, the stores are likely not to be replaced according to the research. Some of the good grocery stores which cannot be replaced by the online ordering stores such as Amazon include gas stations where an individual cannot order for gas in the online stores, laundry business, or ice cream stores where individuals need the products urgently and at their proximity. To ensure that the retail stores perform even better, Cosenza suggested that the owners of such stores should think creatively to come up with a unique approach of conducting business. Moreover, they should aim at minimizing the amount of retail with the intent of driving the business’ growth.
