Forever 21

Forever 21

So, Colliers International came out with a list of the retailers that are likely to expand this year. They called the list “Companies Likely to Pursue Expansion this Year”, but I would prefer to call it something like…”Retail Expansion for Smart Companies” (Not so original, check out Steve Pavlina‘s book to see where I got the idea from). So many tenants/retailers are sitting on the sidelines while landlords are giving FANTASTIC deals. Oh well, scared money “don’t make none.” Here is the list:

  1. AT&T Mobility
  2. Au Bon Pain
  3. Best Buy
  4. Costco
  5. CVS
  6. Dollar Tree
  7. Family Dollar
  8. Five Guys Burgers and Fries
  9. Forever 21
  10. Fresh & Easy
  11. Gold’s Gym
  12. Goodwill Industries International
  13. Noodles & Company
  14. O’Reilly Auto Parts
  15. Panera Bread Company
  16. Party City
  17. Rainbow Shops
  18. Ross Stores
  19. Rue 21
  20. Smart & Final
  21. Sprouts Farmers Market
  22. Sunflower Farmers Market
  23. Urban Active Fitness

Now, that is Colliers International’s list, but I know of a few more that are making moves in this time of opportunity:

  • Citi Trends
  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • TJX (Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods)
  • Great Harvest Bread
  • Wal-Mart
  • Kohl’s
  • Aldi
  • Food Lion (Bloom, Bottom Dollar, Food Lion)
  • Advance Auto Parts
  • Auto Zone

So there are definitely some trends here and we will talk about those in coming posts!
