Ryan C. Reinert, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Tampa office, was recently interviewed by Tampa Bay Business & Wealth Magazine for the December 2020 edition’s real estate trend article, “Avalanche or Revival – What’s ahead for retail real estate in 2021.”
Discussing the shuttered businesses and brands facing bankruptcy due to the pandemic’s impact on the retail real estate sector, Ryan explains how businesses have used PPP funding and bankruptcy protection strategies in 2020. He goes on to detail how 2021 may see another wave of retail businesses closing their doors once relief funding has been depleted. The article also discusses opportunity zones among the retail apocalypse, including possibilities for would-be investors and people looking to acquire real estate that they could not have secured before the pandemic.
