In an effort to stay one step ahead of the digital giants, stores across the world are renewing and refreshing their shop fronts to create anexperience for shoppers that cannot be mirrored in the screens of the online world, and it's working. A recent study by Cushman & Wakefield looked at the trends in retail from a proprietary perspective and found that despite perceived digital threats, retail rentals have reordered a 0.5 % growth over the year to June.
