Imagining a more modern grocery store
Chicago Tribune
The typical grocery store may look very different in the future, with super-fast checkouts, drive-up windows and touch-screen displays among the changes aimed at satisfying shoppers. However, while innovations such as super-speedy checkouts sound great to many people, they can also cut into some very profitable sales.

International arrivals to offer shoppers more in-store options
The Houston Chronicle
Fans of apparel chain H&M may be getting more "fast fashion" shopping options, including Uniqlo from Japan and Primark from Ireland. And future shopping center developments will continue to have grocery stores as anchors but fewer stores surrounding them. Those were among the retail trends addressed during a panel discussion titled, "Shopping Centers Tomorrow: Clicks, Bricks & Sticks," at the 48th annual National Association of Real Estate Editors convention that began June 11 at the Westin Oaks Hotel.

Retail security: A complex sale
Security InfoWatch
As many security integrators are aware, the retail security market has experienced a pretty dramatic shift in the past decade, which makes selling to this huge market a trickier proposition. Retail security departments that are dominated by decision makers from the loss prevention side of the equation are dwindling. Analog cameras are reaching their end of life — and with that, a retail security operation's need for live operators is declining as well.

Redevelopment of riverfront MichCon site in Ann Arbor in the works
The Ann Arbor News
A long-awaited redevelopment of the former MichCon coal gasification plant site along the Huron River in Ann Arbor is in the works. DTE Energy, which owns the 14-acre site at the foot of the Broadway bridges, says a developer could be announced by the end of this summer. The Detroit-based utility's goal for the site is to bring about a first-class, mixed-use development capitalizing on the unique features of the riverfront location. Any plan will include significant green space open to the public, DTE Energy spokeswoman Randi Berris said. "We are also considering ideas including a restaurant, residential, parking and a hotel or retail/commercial space," she said.
