The latest edition of Living Retail is now available for free download or viewing online. Published by Real Asset Media, Living Retail looks in detail at retailer responses to current trends.
Some of these trends are of course a direct result of the pandemic and some have merely been accelerated by the crisis. But one thing is clear, bricks-and-mortar retailers and F&B operators are thinking innovatively, and so too are property owners.
We look at increasing prominence of grocery-based retail on the agendas of both consumers and investors, and we learn how adopting a local focus can improve engagement with consumers.
Leading architect Ibrahim Ibrahim of Portland Design discusses what operators need to do to stay relevant and we look at three emerging brands that are finding their niche in the changing world of retail and leisure. Also in the spotlight is the new European Council of Shopping Places and we look at its efforts to ensure the sector emerges in good shape for the future, once the current health crisis subsides.
