The summer is officially here and Sears is at it again closing 72 more stores. While it seems that big-box retail is undergoing similar pressure throughout the nation, I disagree. Old big-box retailers are starting to close their doors because they can’t keep up with what customers want. In my eyes, Sears was never an exciting consumer expereience and their online game isn’t well advertised. My guess, brands like TJX’s newest concept Homesense will start taking over some of these big-box vacancies and we will see a lot of regrowth in the larger retail space!
