Online Shopping vs. Big box stores
As the popularity of online shopping increases, big box stores are continuously declining to near-extinction. Countless articles and reports of empty shopping malls are listed by seemingly every news source. And there are endless predictions of big box store closures from all major news outlets, too. It seems that every quarter, there is another announcement of bankruptcy, store closures, or of massive layoffs.
But small businesses are here to stay
Fortunately, many small businesses are unlikely to be the victims of the same fate as big box stores. Service-oriented small businesses are particularly difficult to find online. Therefore, are very unlikely to suffer much economic fallout from the closures of big box stores. If anything, the closure of so many big box stores has been better for small businesses.
