New Retail Leaders Are No Joke

While it may be enjoyable to poke fun at the notion of discount stores emerging as new retail leaders, the reality is that names like FIVE OLLI, even DG DLTR have all been acting notably well of late, ignoring the department store shellackings we saw with JCP JWN M, to boot.

These emerging new batch of retail leaders could easily continue to benefit as the novelty of shopping in person for fun discounted items serves as the much-needed in-person experience which online does not provide--It's just that the experience will come at a much cheaper and benign price point than the aspiration high end retailers ever wanted to envisions.
