There is this relatively unknown world of retail real estate: “logistics”. Or, how do retailers and e-tailers actually get products into their customers hands.
There is an old axiom in real estate, “location, location, location.” Most decisions affecting the purchase and sale of real estate revolved around location. The location controlled the decision. Now there is a much greater focus on how to get the product into the customers hands. In many cases, logistics control retail real estate decisions rather than real estate controlling the logistics.
Howard and Kris will discuss how logistics affects real estate decisions of the retailer and e-tailer.
How differently does the e-tailer view logistics from brick & mortar retailers? What are the unique challenges to both?
Is there a melding of e-tail and retail and what does this all mean to our industry?.
Kris will share his views on retail trends both current and future.
