LOS ANGELES—GlobeSt.com recently caught up with Gary Glick, partner at Cox Castle Nicholson, based here in Los Angeles, to discuss the two major movements his retail team is seeing in the market today. “There is a movement towards ‘Amazon-proofing retail centers,’ or leasing to experiential tenants like restaurants, theaters and fashion retailers over any tenant that competes with Amazon.com,” he says.

According to Glick, “With the increasing popularity of non-union specialty grocers such as Whole Foods, Sprouts and Trader Joe‘s and non-union traditional grocers such as Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market—not to mention the increasing amounts of groceries sold by non-union big box retailers such as Target, Costco, Wal-Mart and Sam’s—the traditional union supermarket industry will be facing major consolidations and challenges.”
