Retail property values are down 3 percent in past six months, as all other types of commercial real estate showed gains, according to the Moody’s/Real Capital Analytics indexes. A Bloomberg gauge of publicly traded mall landlords has tumbled 15 percent in the past year through April 20, the worst performance among U.S. real estate investment trusts. Amazon.com Inc. and other internet retailers continue to grow, while department stores including Sears Holdings Corp. and Macy’s Inc. have been closing hundreds of locations. Payless Inc., the discount shoe seller, is among the latest to announce a massive shuttering — of 400 stores — as part of a bankruptcy plan. “We expect to see a trend of more closings,” said Carol Kemple, an analyst at Hilliard Lyons. “Most retailers, if they’re still standing in September, will probably try to make it through the holiday season.” Retail landlords have already made a push toward experience-driven offerings by adding restaurants, movie theaters and activity centers for children. Many malls are also adding rotating stores around for only a short time — known as pop-up shops — that are meant to attract young customers who see shopping as an event.

stores, including imported aged ham, at a New York City launch event held May 16, 2017. For curious grocery shoppers and competitors stretching from New Jersey to Georgia, the wait is nearly over. Germany’s largest retailer will open its first Lidl stores in the United States on June 15. Locations in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton and Newport News are expected to be among the first 20 locations to open across Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. But executives were coy about just which stores would open on the June date, as they have been with other specifics related to the expansion . The chain, which has 10,000 stores in 27 countries, plans to battle in a competitive grocery environment on price and quality. Shoppers should expect to bag their own groceries and pay for those bags unless they bring their own, part of a strategy to keep costs low. Expect to find wines, cheeses and meats, including aged imported proscuitto di parma, jamón serrano, red wine goat cheese and extra mature cheddar. Every week, stores will sell a small selection of general merchandise – yoga pants, a lawnmower or a leather jacket were mentioned as possibilities – based on a theme. The smell of fresh baked bread will be front and center.
