Commercial real estate


Urban blight

Subrban blight

Sbarro’s files for bankruptcy (again) – blames diminishing mall traffic. I’m not particularly interested in the loss of cardboard pizza outlets – there are plenty more – but this seems to be further evidence that the worst blight to hit modern American culture in the past half-century, the super mall, may be fading away. Bring on the bulldozers.

    Short all mall REITS. Buy leaps for cardboard box, sealed air and delivery companies. As the boomers die off, so does mall / strip mall retail.

    What to do with all that retail space? Amazon warehouse/distribution centers, naturally, for same day delivery.

    I figured Sbarro made more dough at all the highway rest stop places they have than at a mall. Today most bigger gas stations have food chains inside, from Duncan Donuts to Sbarro.
