Crossman & Company releases its Q1 2015 Southeast US Market Report

Orlando, Fla. – Crossman & Company analyzed the retailers in the southeast market and assembled a list of tenants that have made announcements – expansions and closures – from late 2014 through the end of the first quarter of 2015.

A four-year study by the FBIC released in 2015 revealed that up to 46 percent of store closure announcements take place within the first quarter of the year.

The retailers have been grouped into three categories using a traffic stoplight metaphor to gauge their financial standings.

Green Light – These are retailers that are doing well and have announced plans for aggressive growth. The list is mostly made up of retailers that specialize in quick-service and fast-casual restaurants, service and fast fashion.

Retailers include Dollar General, Walmart Neighborhood Market and Starbucks.

Yellow Light – Retailers who have had to close a portion of their stores for various reasons and have triggered attention. These retailers have the potential to recover strongly or they may falter in the unstable space they occupy in the market

Retailers include Target, American Eagle Outfitters and JC Penney.

Red Light – These retailers have suffered losses, have filed for bankruptcy or are trending toward unprofitable metrics. Retailers that made the list have failed to evolve their brand in response to the shifting habits of their target demographics

Retailers include RadioShack, Sears Holdings Corp. and Delia’s.
