We’ve got ‘the power’
Chain Store Age makes no secret of the fact that we are a retail publication – and have been since 1925. Our readership is retail headquarters executives and our content is directed toward, and influenced by, that very group.
In the September 2014 issue, however, we looked at another group – one that is integrally involved with retailers and often determines the success of a single store or an entire market: retail brokers.
Real estate brokers are often unsung heroes, driving success through strategic site selection and market penetration. So CSA decided, for the first time in our near-90-year history, to shine the spotlight on the retail brokerage community by naming 15 “power brokers” – real estate heavyweights who have made a real mark on the retail chains they serve and the markets they operate in.

2. Andrew Goldberg
