Interview: Update Williamson with Lacy Beasley

Oct. 21, 2020

Matt Largen, president/CEO of Williamson, Inc
interviews Lacy Beasley

“It’s not that retail is dead, but that boring retail is dead.”— Lacy Beasley

Matt: Do you think COVID will accelerate trends in retail, or fundamentally change the way we shop, eat and experience… or maybe a little bit of both?

Hear Lacy discussing the dynamic changes in the retail industry, the consumer centric retailer’s use of omni-channeling, and how COVID has compressed the normal rate of change allowing for those who are well placed and react quickly to thrive while other retail concepts fail or are increasingly challenged.

My relationship with the Retail Strategies team has been extremely valuable over the last couple of years as I’ve searched for sites in the Southeast. They have been persistent and provided any information they could gather for available properties that fit my criteria. If they received news that a space was coming available they made sure to immediately give me a call and connect with the owners. I would recommend using this service to any of my colleagues looking in their client cities.
