The Latino community is mostly compromised of entrepreneurs that flourish when given the right opportunities. With half the shopping centers being occupied by mom and pop stores, they will be the life line to keep malls alive. Everyone wins when locally owned businesses open locations in a mall.Local businesses benefit from the steady flow of mall traffic & mall developers create unique shopping experiences consumers crave.
“A fresh, imaginative store that’s beautifully designed
makes a strong showroom for a mall’s leasing department to sell other spaces.
It helps create stronger adjacencies for existing tenants.
It changes the energy of that floor or wing of the mall
when a locally owned retailer has a cult following
that they can activate and drive to their location.”
– Melissa Gonzalez, Founder & Chief Executive of The Lionesque Grou
