What Happens After Walmart

Just exactly what is ending and what will take its place is open for conjecture. The trend of big-box retailers decimating local retailers is now part of our legacy. Rising in its wake is the growing prevalence of online retailing. And as these online and big-box showcasing grow one has to wonder what the role of the physical store will be in 10 years.
