Strategic Resource Group Managing Director Burt Flickinger argues future malls will focus on food, local stores, distribution centers and community events.

Flickinger discusses the effect of the Neiman-Marcus bankruptcy on retail overall, and the new strategies for Shopping Centers & Malls, as well as the reasons behind Dillard’s, Macy’s, Costco, BJ’s, & some ICSC members’ recent new and creative site location successes (including rooftop solar). Etsy, eBay, local food retailers, artisans, and restaurateurs can take advantage of the changing retail landscape a la Jim Taylor Jr. and Brixmor with Sprouts.
