Chicago Jones Lang LaSalle announced it has launched a podcast series entitled “What’s in Store.”
According to JLL, the series is designed to provide retailers the latest information about cutting-edge trends and strategies.
The Jones Lang LaSalle Corporate Retail Solutions team, led by Joe Brady and Lew Kornberg along with Jones Lang LaSalle experts in vertical sectors, will be creating the two-minute podcasts based on compelling and timely real-world situations and trends seen within the retail landscape nationwide.
“Since the economic and retail environment has changed so dramatically within the last two years, we want to provide retailers a playbook on key themes affecting their business,” said Brady, managing director, Corporate Retail Solutions. “Our goal is to provide our unique in-the-trenches perspective on what lies ahead so the retail community can seize upon opportunities and capitalize on challenges, creating a more robust shopping experience for consumers.”
Covering a wide array of topics including the upcoming lease accounting changes, portfolio optimization and leasing strategies, the podcasts will be available on Jones Lang LaSalle’s YouTube channel as well as on its website.
“We hope to be a conduit to new ideas within the retail industry as tenants and landlords alike recognize that what worked three years ago does not necessarily generate success today,” said Kornberg, managing director, Corporate Retail Solutions. “The lack of available financing and a glut of vacant space require a more creative, strategic approach to occupancy, expansion and branding, and we look forward to sharing our lessons learned via these podcasts.”
Some highlights from upcoming podcasts include Lease Accounting Changes, focusing on the upcoming FASB/IASB rule change; Adaptive Reuse; Internet’s Impact; and Pop-up Stores and Temporary Leases.
