The retail apocalypse coming to a mall near you

Is this retail apocalypse you’ve been hearing so much about a reality? Is this really the end for the American shopping mall?

Yes! And it’s going to get worse, but I want you to see why it was totally predictable.

All the retail store closings and bankruptcies were baked into the cake because of a massive demographic trend that peaked in late 2007.

As enormous as e-commerce has become… and as quickly as it continues to grow, it’s nothing compared to the role demographics has played in dictating the fate of the retail economy.

In our latest infographic, The End of Retail as We Know it, we dive deep into the decline of the retail industry and reveal how a culprit even larger than Amazon, has buried retail stores everywhere and why you’ll see even more consolidation in the years ahead.
