SCOTTSDALE, AZ - In order to compete with online shopping, some Valley shopping centers are revamping their look, providing consumers with options not available online.
Scottsdale Quarter, which holds several big-brand retailers, now offers more service-oriented businesses, a luxury consumers can’t get online.
“It’s a destination location,” said Scottsdale Quarter Leasing Agent Jacqueline Fitch.
Fitch told ABC15 the sky is the limit as to what businesses might be added to the shopping center in the future.
Scottsdale Quarter already has a yoga center, movie theater, craft store and a hair salon in addition to the traditional restaurants and retail stores.
“You can’t get your hair blown-out online,” Fitch said. “You can’t go make a craft online, either.”
Fitch said Scottsdale Quarter is a good example of how to compete with online retailers, as other leasing groups from across the country have come to look at their model.
