How retail centers are redefining themselves

December 01, 2019

In the past few years, we have seen an increasing shift towards non-retail services in shopping centers, as consumers have demanded more fun and immersive experiences when they shop. We expect fitness expansions in retail to continue to grow. Boutique studios like F45 Training, Fit Body Boot Camp and Pure Barre have been aggressively expanding. Budget gyms are on the rise as well. Low-priced players like Planet Fitness, Crunch and Anytime Fitness have opened hundreds of locations since 2013 and will continue to expand. Entertainment tenants remain a key ingredient for shopping centers. From Q1 2010 to Q1 2019, space occupied by entertainment tenants grew 44.7 percent in malls to 45.2 million square feet and 68.5 percent in other shopping centers to 129.7 million square feet.
