Find out more about the ‘Little Empires’ the New York Times is talking about and hear from the businesses that make these retail concepts happen in emerging urban markets.
Don’t miss an exciting event (sponsored in part by Larisa Ortiz Associates) in collaboration with International Council of Shopping Center’s (ICSC) NYC Alliance Program entitled “Local Chains Strike Gold in Emerging Markets” on the morning of October 20th, 2009 at the New York City Bar Association.
The panel discussion will include representatives from three metro-area “chain-lets” (Carol’s Daughter, The Greene Grape and Cookie’s Department Store) that are seeking and finding opportunities for growth in the outer boroughs. Keynote speaker Aaron Fleishaker, VP of Real Estate for Fairway Foods will also be on hand to explain how his company has taken advantage of opportunities in markets that others have shied away from.
