Joe Cosenza at RECon 2018

LAS VEGAS—Not all the dire headlines appearing in the consumer press about web sales killing brick-and-mortar retail are accurate. A lot of those stories aren’t murders; they’re actually suicides, as The Inland Real Estate Group vice chairman and Inland Real Estate Acquisitions president Joe Cosenza explains in this RECon video exclusive.

There are certainly formats that are web-resistant, he points out—and therein lies a major differentiator in the Inland strategy. Watch the video and you will also hear:

  • The good news / bad news for retailers about the Amazon phenom;
  • A deeper dive behind the dire consumer press retail headlines; and
  • Why shopping center owners would be wise to bank on an ice cream cone and a haircut as much as a grocery format.
