Brick-and-mortar retail stores are going through a prolonged contraction — one that will shrink both the number and size of storefronts across the nation over the next decade. This trend is having far-reaching effects on everything from employment and sales tax revenue to commercial real estate and construction. And Northern Nevada, like the rest of the nation, will see the ripple effects of these changes.

 

Store closures have hit RadioShack, Sears, J.C. Penney, and most recently Macy’s — which announced 68 store closures this month. Some analysts estimate that the nation’s overall retail square footage will drop by between one-third and one-half over the next five to 10 years.
