Consumers’ current spending priorities favor single-tenant retail operations, a new report from Marcus & Millichap finds. Single-tenant retailers generally fall into eight main categories, the commercial real estate advisor reports: auto parts stores, convenience stores, dollar stores, fast-casual restaurants, fitness centers, grocery/general retail, pharmacies and quick-service restaurants.

“The outlook for dining and necessity retail remains positive as summer approaches, despite a flat trend in overall consumer spending,” the report states. “Continued inflation, labor market concerns and high interest rates are influencing households to prioritize social interactions over big ticket items that were popular during lockdowns.”

That prioritization of spending on necessity goods will aid renewal and new leasing activity across certain key types of single-tenant retail, the report notes, including supermarkets, drug stores and convenience stores.

“The collective tightness across these subsectors may motivate some retailers to re-evaluate their leasing criteria, considering spaces in urban settings, outlying locations or older shopping centers,” the report states.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
