The way we shop is changing. The way retailers interact with customers is changing. Major shifts in consumer behavior have caused dramatic changes to the retail industry. As consumers continue to shop online, all aspects of bricks and mortar retailing, including shopping center design, are under scrutiny. As shopping patterns continue to change and retailers work to adapt, the future of retail will look different than it does today.
Recognizing retail is at a crossroads, the City of Centennial aspires to be a proactive partner within the retail environment to assist in creating the future of exciting, unique and sustainable retail centers. The City of Centennial needs to be Future Ready, Economically Vibrant and Fiscally Responsible.
Through planning, creative land use, and partnerships with the private sector, the City can play an integral role in transforming the retail landscape within Centennial- leading to businesses locating into Centennial retail shopping centers and more visitors frequenting those spaces. How we interact and partner with the private sector is evolving to greatly impact our retail shopping centers. Targeted efforts by the City with clear strategies will help transform retail assets in Centennial.
