TRADITIONAL RETAIL IS DYING

Brick and mortar retail companies continue to struggle to their doors open. In 2019 alone, traditional retail stalwarts like Gap, Chico’s, Ascena Retail Group (Ann Taylor, Lane Bryant, Loft, Justine’s, etc.), Payless Shoesource, and Pier 1 Imports are closing hundreds to thousands of stores each. Each year, this trend only continues to increase, as companies are forced to either close down or get bought out.
