2: Be smart about retail
Consumer behaviour is changing rapidly, with a clear shift away from the high street towards online sales. Some businesses have responded well to managing this change but others have fallen victim to the decline of the high street and face obsolescence.
Invest in properties that play into current and future shopping trends. High street retailers may do less well than retail warehouse parks, which have the benefit of convenience, and larger spaces to accommodate a fuller range of products. Click-and-collect services are increasingly desired by consumers.
