DALLAS—Grocery-anchored centers continued to be an attractive property type for investors in 2017, with sales volumes increasing by 5.3%. The asset class remained stable amid a period of low retail transaction volumes. But after grocery store expansions went bananas in 2016, the industry took a minute to digest the following year. Openings of new grocery stores reached 13.4 million square feet of space, which is a decrease of 28.8% year-over-year, according to JLL’s grocery tracker 2018 report.
