GOLDMAN SACHS: The death of malls will fuel ‘degentrification’

As national bondage gobbled up sell space opposite the country,
they did so at the responsibility of smaller mom-and-pop
shops. 

But now, as the brick-and-mortar bondage die a slow
and unpleasant death, small businesses could make a
quip by stuffing the void, according to two Goldman
Sachs executives.

Speaking on the firm’s
podcast, Kim Posnett, conduct of internet investment banking,
and Kathy Elsesser, head of the medical and consumer
and sell investment banking divisions, explained how exactly
ecommerce is fulfilment earthy sell stores.  

“I consider there will turn a degentrification, for miss of a
better word,” says Posnett. “We will see the rents come
down, and mom and pops shops will come back in a much more
curated, personal way that goes along these lines of creating
good service and a clarity of community, and a enterprise to support
your community.”

But these sell resurrections will need to consider the new
business landscape if they wish to locate ecommerce’s 15% annual
expansion rate. (Retail as a whole is only flourishing about 3% per
year.)

“It’s not just about ecommerce contra brick-and-mortar,”
says Elsesser. “It’s also about how are people spending. And
it’s travel, it’s restaurants, it’s media, it’s entertainment,
it’s lodging. Versus the some-more accessories, attire and personal
consumer products we saw in the past.”

Shoppers wish to bond with a code on a personal level, say
Posnett and Elsesser. For example, a coffee shop is no longer
just selling a crater of joe, it’s selling a place to work on your
laptop or relax. Grocery stores have satisfied this too, and have
commissioned restaurants and coffee shops to drive traffic.

“It has to be some-more than just the product,” says Elsesser. “More
about the knowledge as a whole.”
