ICSC Announces Hot Retailers for 2011

Want to make sure your center has a retail mix that will inspire shoppers? Take a look at ICSC’s list of Hot Retailers for 2011. These are the retailers chosen as the hottest retailers of the year as chosen by a survey of ICSC’s worldwide members. They were announced at RECon last week. The four retailers are Athleta, Smashburger, ALDI, and Fossil.

Athleta was founded with the mission of providing women athletes with apparel for different sports and fitness activities. It’s a major leader in the fast-growing women’s sports apparel industry.

Smashburger is the fastest growing casual burger restaurant in the U.S. It’s designed to be every city’s favorite place for burgers. It’s growing fast, with 100 locations currently and 400 more planned over the next couple years.

ALDI is hardly a new concept, but it’s managed to grow and stay up to date with shoppers. ALDI boasts it applies smart and efficient operational and business practices to save more than 20 million monthly customers up to 50 percent on their grocery bills.

Fossil Inc. is a global retailer specializing in the design, innovation, and marketing of fashion lifestyle and accessory products. With ith over 350 stores worldwide and a strong global e-commerce business, Fossil is internationally known for its eclectic assortment of lifestyle and accessory items including watches, handbags, and clothing.

So there you have it. If you’ve got those four retailers in your roster, you’re doing great – and if you’re looking for new tenants, these might give you a direction to look.
