The movement of online retailers into physical spaces has a robust future, according to a new report by JLL. Over the next five years, about 850 stores with roots as digitally native brands will open brick-and-mortar shops nationwide.
JLL examined the expansion plans of more than 100 digital retailers to come to that conclusion. The report further found that New York remains the top city for both pop-ups and first permanent locations for online retailers, but coastal markets like Los Angeles and San Francisco are also popular choices.
