Woe is the Big-Box Retail Space (And Its Owner)

From a real estate perspective, the end of Borders Books was not just the story of a deluge of big-box retail vacancies. It was also a symbol of the pronounced effects growth in internet retailing is having on the landscape of the U.S. Though Atlanta's most prominently-located Borders space (in Brookwood Place on Peachtree Road) found a new tenant fairly quickly, other locations have not fared as well, especially in the suburbs. We've said it before and we'll say it again...the solutions to problems like these lie in this excellent tome, written in part right here in Atlanta, GA. [WSJ]
