Lee & Associates’ Mark Kapnick and John Salustri at RECON 2017

LAS VEGAS—What? Us worry? That could be the war call of the retail industry, despite the bankruptcies, closings and generally depressing news pushed by the consumer media. Pros in the know say that those who can adapt can also grow, and Lee and Associates’ EVP and principal Mark Kapnick is one of them, and here he lays out his view of the landscape with a recipe for success.

In the course of this exclusive video interview from the trade show floor of RECon 2017, you’ll hear Kapnick’s view of how tenanting has evolved, how rightsizing is also progressing in this era of new concepts and how food users are to the shopping center what movie goers once were.
