As the largest retail real estate event on the east coast, ICSC New York Deal Making had nearly 10,000 retail professionals from all corners of the US and even some from across the pond, flocking to the Big Apple for the week of December 3rd. This year’s keynote address featured Doug Stephens, founder of Retail Prophet and 20-year veteran of the retail industry.

Also new to their program was “Retail in Focus,” featuring many emerging brands that started out as digitally-native and are now in the various stages of opening strategic physical locations in line with the brands they’ve cultivated on the internet, and where their audience is located.

Our Fernando Toro had the opportunity to sit down and discuss the state of retail in Puerto Rico. Please, see video.
