Texas Retail Reboot: What does the future of retail look like post-coronavirus?
As many businesses in Texas begin reopening, retailers and restaurants are at the forefront, figuring out how to accommodate patrons and staff. As these stores open for business, the retail industry will continue assessing what is needed for a successful recovery for retail properties across the state. On Thursday, May 7, from 10:45 – 11:45 AM Central, hear insights from leaders in the Texas retail market. Herb Weitzman of Weitzman, Billy Osherow of Endeavor Real Estate Group, Ward Kampf of Northwood Retail, and Jennifer Pierson of STRIVE will join moderator Tanya Little of Hart Advisors Group for a discussion about what challenges face the Texas retail market and how the industry can overcome the challenges. Topics to be discussed:
What new practices and strategies have retailers and landlords adopted to get through this crisis?
How are retail developers helping their tenants, whether through rent deferrals or abatements, additional marketing, and promotional assistance or other types of measures?
How will COVID-19 impact retail occupancy and how much vacant space could be returned to the market?
What big-picture lessons can the industry take away from the pandemic and apply to brick-and-mortar retail in the future?
This is a critical time for the retail industry. Join us as we share the insights you need to be well-positioned as the industry continues to evolve and adapt. This webinar is sponsored by Hart Advisors Group. The webinar is produced by Shopping Center Business, the nation's only business magazine for the retail real estate industry, and Texas Real Estate Business, the only commercial real estate regional magazine for Texas.
