The ultimate goal will be to provide the necessary foundation for the business to leverage customer data in meaningful ways. Actionable use of customer-related information across the business to enhance the customer experience will be a key differentiator to increase market share.

    Retail Trade: NAICS 44-45

    About the Retail Trade sector

    The retail trade sector is part of the trade, transportation, and utilities supersector.

    The Retail Trade sector comprises establishments engaged in retailing merchandise, generally without transformation, and rendering services incidental to the sale of merchandise.

    The retailing process is the final step in the distribution of merchandise; retailers are, therefore, organized to sell merchandise in small quantities to the general public. This sector comprises two main types of retailers: store and nonstore retailers.

    1. Store retailers operate fixed point-of-sale locations, located and designed to attract a high volume of walk-in customers. In general, retail stores have extensive displays of merchandise and use mass-media advertising to attract customers. They typically sell merchandise to the general public for personal or household consumption, but some also serve business and institutional clients. In addition to retailing merchandise, some types of store retailers are also engaged in the provision of after-sales services, such as repair and installation.

    2. Nonstore retailers, like store retailers, are organized to serve the general public, but their retailing methods differ. The establishments of this subsector reach customers and market merchandise with methods, such as the broadcasting of “infomercials,” the broadcasting and publishing of direct-response advertising, the publishing of paper and electronic catalogs, door-to-door solicitation, in-home demonstration, selling from portable stalls (street vendors, except food), and distribution through vending machines.

    North American Industry Classification System

    The retail trade sector consists of these subsectors:

    Workforce Statistics

    This section provides information relating to employment and unemployment in retail trade. While most data are obtained from employer or establishment surveys, information on industry unemployment comes from a national survey of households. The following tables present an overview of the industry including the number of jobs, the unemployment rate of those previously employed in the industry, job openings and labor turnover, union membership and representation, gross job gains and losses, data for occupations common to the industry, and projections of occupational employment change.

    Wholesale and Retail Trade Industry

    The wholesale and retail trade supersector is made up of two parts: the wholesale trade sector (sector 42), and the retail trade sector (sector 44 – 45).

    The wholesale trade sector comprises establishments engaged in wholesaling merchandise, generally without transformation, and rendering services incidental to the sale of merchandise. The wholesaling process is an intermediate step in the distribution of merchandise. Wholesalers are organized to sell or arrange the purchase or sale of (a) goods for resale (i.e. goods sold to other wholesalers or retailers), (b) capital or durable nonconsumer goods, and (c) raw and intermediate materials and supplies used in production. Wholesalers sell merchandise to other businesses and normally operate from a warehouse or office.

    in retail trade, there were 412 extended mass layoff events, 135,679 separations, and 108,419 initial claimants.

    Employment Projections data indicate that wholesale trade employment will increase 11.3 percent over the 2002 – 12 period. Retail trade employment will increase 13.8 percent. Total employment for all industry sectors is projected to grow 14.8 percent.

    Labor productivity – defined as output per hour – grew by 5.6 percent in wholesale trade from 2001 to 2002, according to data from the Productivity and Costs program; the growth in output per hour in retail trade was 4.5 percent.

    Einzelhandels-Immobilien wie Discount-Märkte, Fachmarkt-Center, Baumärkte, Shopping Center und weitere gewerblich genutzte Rendite-Immobilien in ganz Deutschland sind seit 1990 unser Spezialgebiet. Wir gehören zu dem überschaubaren Kreis der Experten in diesem Sektor, beraten zahlreiche Bauträger und Investoren und bieten nur Objekte und Standorte an, die wir genau recherchiert und beurteilt, meist selbst besichtigt und die Preise und Kaufbedingungen auf Marktfähigkeit verhandelt haben.

    Diese schlüsselfertig mit langfristigen Mietverträgen von Top-Mietern übergebenen Märkte – Hauptmieter sind immer namhafte Konzerne – sind Anlage-Perlen, gelegen in den interessantesten Lagen, von Konzern-Standortplanern nach gründlichen Analysen als positiv und entwicklungsfähig bewertet. Sie unterscheiden sich von anderen Asset-Klassen wie Bürohäusern oder auch Fußgängerzonen-Objekten durch weitgehende Konjunktur-Resistenz. Sie haben langfristige Mietverträge und reagieren preislich nicht so sensibel auf Konjunktur-Dellen u.ä.

    Daher ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass sie – im Gegensatz zur landläufigen Wahrnehmung, auch in der Fach-Presse – in der gründlichen Langfristbetrachtung vor allen anderen Immobilien rangieren.

    Sie profitieren von unserem bundesweiten know-how, unserer Markt-Durchdringung, unseren Netzwerken.

    Omni-channel: transforming the retail landscape

    Implications for retails’ real estate strategies

    This approach defines the omni-channel environment and has implications for retails’ real estate strategies in terms of store locations, footprint, warehousing, logistics and fulfillment.

    Retailers are embracing technology like never before to enhance both their brand and customer experience. Unlike the past, retailers position physical stores differently and consider them to be a part of the seamless omni-channel customer engagement model, rather that the ‘only channel’. Commonly referred to as concept stores, they blend physical inventory, online access and experiential retailing to customize and enhance the costumer experience. With the focus on converting existing stores into concept stores, real estate owners will have to support technology-enabled retailing.

    Furthermore, retailers will also potentially benefit from continued increase in the use of mobile and social media. A projected 65 percent of the global population will be using a mobile phone by 2016 and an estimated 83 percent of internet usage will be through handheld devices. It is no surprise then that mobile retailing is expected to continue to grow aggressively.

    Real estate owners need to understand technology needs

    The conventional retail real estate approach is largely based on strategic locations; today, however, retail property owners need to continue evolving their “shopping experience through the addition of food, entertainment and a wide array of retail offerings. For this, real estate owners need to partner with tenants to understand their technology needs and incorporate them as integral to store redesign. And those technology needs extend to more than just the store front; understanding big data will be a key driver of long-term retailer prosperity.

    From a real estate perspective, the retail industry is undergoing a profound change. Physical stores remain core to creating an innovative and long-lasting shopping experience, but they are no longer the sole touch point for a retail brand. Instead, stores are positioned as part of the omni-channel customer engagement model, combining physical inventory, online access and an environment that is customized to enhance the customer experience. Much of the real estate portfolio for retailers will not be expanding, but undergoing redevelopment as existing spaces are transformed to provide that unique store ambiance. It is a matter of not just reducing and reinvesting, but also reimagining and repurposing retail space.
