Most recently, local news coverage on KTHV-11 in Little Rock, discussed the large retailer options of valuing Little Rock as a commercial real estate destination opportunity. It appears that there is enough demand for the big box stores i.e. Macy’s, Ikea, and Trader Joe’s, however the decision largely rests on the formula that retailers use for determining the choice locations. That comes down to minimum space requirements, demographics, and ultimately cost factors. With limited commercial space available, those choice spots are quite valuable. The growth in the Central Arkansas communities is spurring demand for name brand retailers perhaps also increasing the online shopping experience for many if those stores do not decide to come.
