The Death of Boring Retail

In case you haven’t heard, physical retail stores are dying. In 2018 alone, there have already been multiple large retail chains that have filed for bankruptcy including Claire’s (Jewelry), Bon-Ton (Department Store), B&B Bachrach (Men’s Apparel) and everyone’s favorite toy store, Toys R Us. If your local Toy’s R Us is anything like mine, the parking lot largely sits empty for 335 days a year and then every night in December the parking lot is packed with Christmas shoppers clamoring to stock up on the latest and greatest toys.  Not surprisingly, this is not sustainable and results in closure and bankruptcy of these stores. Of course, seasonal traffic spikes being the only source of sales are not the only reason these stores aren’t thriving. Other reasons include the digitization of products (books, movies, video games), high cost per square foot, and real estate fees to name a few.
