Join Lauren Thomas, retail reporter for CNBC, and Lacy Beasley, president of Retail Strategies, as they discuss changing consumer habits and the impact it has on retail, real estate, community budgets and retail sales tax.
Consumer behaviors impact retail real estate decisions, and COVID-19 has greatly altered the way we shop and eat. Malls were once the most dominant retail hub in the community; now they’re struggling more than ever. Store closures in malls and shopping centers could cause substantial budget shortfalls for cities and states that are heavily dependent on sales tax. In this webinar, we will cover trends of consumer shopping patterns impacting retail real estate.
Who Should Attend: Economic Development Staff, City Managers, Elected Officials, Main Street Directors, Chamber of Commerce Staff
