Hundreds of thousands of retailers and property owners have been severely impacted by the temporary shutdowns forced in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. No group is immune to the impact of the entire population being forced to stay at home. Companies that were in a strong financial position prior to March 2020 will likely survive the initial shut down, but what follows is likely a very slow ramp back to “normal”. Many tenants are not going to be able to survive an extended partial opening or crippled sales due to lack of consumer confidence. Landlords are in an unprecedented position as tenants from all categories, both large and small, will need some form of assistance to recover from this.
The vacancy waterfall is the next epidemic we’re going to face.
Owners of retail real estate can’t sit back and hope this goes away. Proactive, decisive measures now are the only way to get through this.
For the next year or more, the focus is going to be survival and recovery.
