SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Grocery Anchored centers, have been considered recession-resilient. However, the darling of retail investors -- institutional and private -- has lost its lustre. That's the core thesis of a Retail Traffic post, "Grocery-Anchored Shopping Centers No Longer the Safest Bet in Retail.".
But it doesn't apply to all grocers or grocery anchored centers. High-end grocers are expanding (and forcing major mid-market grocers to adapt.)
