making broad statements relative to Retail real estate can be very misleading. it is very market specific. for example markets such as San Diego, Orange County, west LA, san fransisco and other high barrier to entry markets would welcome some space availability as there is much more demand for large and small spaces in these trade areas that cant be accomodated at this time.
in addition we are now seeing some Catalogue and "online" retailers going to brick & mortar stores to supplement their sales.
