Lisa’s session will take place on Wednesday, February 24 at 11:05 a.m. and is titled, “Retail is Being Battered and Bruised During COVID-19: How are Landlords & Retailers Surviving the Impacts?”
Once a favourite of investors, retail is facing many increasing challenges for some time now. COVID-19 has compounded the issues causing most malls and a considerable number of stores and restaurants to close due to health and safety government mandates. How vulnerable is this property class? This discussion will examine a range of major issues and trends that both landlords and retailers have been dealing with in the current situation. A few examples: How have super regional malls performed vs. smaller enclosed malls vs. power centres vs. grocery anchored centres? With the major surge in online shopping due to mandated closure of most retail, how will brick and mortar co-exist with e-commerce going forward?
