Are big-box stores shrinking?
For many big-box retailers, bigger floor plans are no longer synonymous with being better. In fact, many traditional big-box stores are shrinking their footprints in order to better compete for the attention of today’s consumer. Target, for example, has begun opening stores that are smaller than 50,000 square feet — a dramatic difference from the company’s more typical big-box stores, which are 170,000-plus square feet.Source: Hardware Retailing
