FSP Managing Director Ken Gunn featured in a Property Week article that assessed the current retail landscape and looking ahead in 2018.

Talking about fashion retailers downsizing their portfolios and reinventing themselves, with attention drawn to that of the large grocery chains who have reduced their store count over the years and found new ways of utilising excess space, the focus of grocery retailing is now very much on small "express" stores. The general consensus is that none of the big grocery chains will be rejoining the space race for larger stores any time soon.

Grocery retailers have taken the pain. This has been going on for a long time. Hopefully they are further down the track, but nevertheless there is that constant erosion from sales of large stores so the focus will be more on neighbourhood retailing.
