The retail industry is all around us. Whether it is helping us put food on the table, clothes on our backs, or delivering us a common product, we rely on retail to provide us with what we need, when we need it. From local shopping centers to regional malls, retail properties are characterized by having the sole purpose of selling and delivering consumer goods and services. Although in a growing technological world where e-commerce has established itself as a threat to the retail industry, online retailers have still been establishing themselves in physical stores, only increasing the presence of the retail sector in commercial real estate. Offering both unique investment structures and the potential for higher than average risk-adjusted returns, retail has established itself as an attractive opportunity for real estate investors.
