I was talking with my Dad about the fate of the local mall and we got to talking about the future of retail. Our mall anchors have basically imploded like most malls. The trend in the last 5 years has been build next to the mall to capture some of the traffic but make sure that everyone can tell they are their own store. Even if the mall folds they can stay right where they are and continue on. One bright spot was Costco becoming an anchor store for our mall. We’ve never had a Costco and it will do a hell of a lot more business than the Macys ever did. But my guess is customers will go to Costco and leave and cannibalize a ton of the stores in the mall.
The real future of all those stores is online. A combo of their brick and mortar and online. It was an easy transition into why I bought domains. Because they are the hot new real estate. New is as in 20 years old new, but I truly think domains are peaking with COVID showing that all non perishable goods will be run through the Internet. All local sales will be for perishables, convenience, and fill the “I’ve got to hold it first” shopping experience. The rest will be researched and probably purchased online. And the best domains will provide the best brand to build that on.
I don’t think all boats will float either. Bad names will continue to be bad names and all non coms will be a secondary choice. They can still sell for a lot of money but they will be purchased because they can’t buy the dot com. I feel fortunate that I have been successful in building a brick and mortar company and have sold two Internet companies, and hundreds of domain names. I get business from both sides and understand the importance of both. I can speak to companies and understand where they are and where they should be. I’m not a fanboy for either side. I understand the fact that most companies can’t afford to spend six figures on a domain name. A domain investor would say you can’t afford not to. But its usually a domain investor that’s never done anything but get a paycheck and hasn’t ever signed one. Regardless of income, a business owner must understand that they need to move quickly. They still have a chance to get a good domain but that window is closing quickly. They will soon be gone or out of the price range a small business can afford. That’s not a fanboy, that’s a fact.
Domain of the Day: HomeAndHealthy.com This one had no bids when I wrote this but seems to timely and spot on to not be four figures when the day is over.
