Consumption patterns have changed with the Covid crisis, as has the nature of the act of buying, but consumption remains a fundamental human need in our society, in the same way as living and working. Retail real estate is therefore not dead, the consumer will always need and want points of contact, proximity, advice, exchanges, physical presentation of products or services, in addition to the decision to buy online or in its continuity.
