South Florida’s retail leasing market is in transition, as the sector struggles nationwide amid the growing strength of e-commerce.

Many stores are rethinking their brick-and-mortar strategies, which means less retail and more restaurants and service uses, said Dave Preston, executive managing director at Colliers International South Florida.

Yet, particularly in the suburbs, grocery stores, health and fitness facilities, entertainment venues and discount retailers are continuing to lease large spaces, he said.

“Our densities are really helping us maintain a strong retail market,” Preston said. “New furniture stores are opening, gyms…. As long as we have the rooftops and the densities, that aren’t going away anytime soon, we feel there is always a place for brick-and-mortar in South Florida.”
