The Black Urbanist Radio Show Episode 001: On Retail
Welcome again to another podcast episode! This week focuses on the changing nature of retail.
If you are just joining us on the podcast and haven’t been able to read all the posts I reference here they are below:
The Walkability Paradox (the post about North Hills).
Smaller Retail for a Smaller Buying and Consuming Era.
Does it Matter Who Owns the Corner Store?
Mails and Main Streets–Two Sides of the Same Coin
The Department Store of the Amazon and New Urbanist Era
Putting Place and Experience Back Into Retail
I also mentioned Groceteria- http://www.groceteria.com for context on retail history in Greensboro and across the Southeast.
The History of Belk book, which is older, but also helpful as a reference for those companies. I also mentioned the Target wiki page.
