Specialty Retail Industry

Thirty years ago, the first carts made their premiere in the common area of shopping centers. What started as a novelty has grown into an $8 billion market segment and a staple of the shopping center industry.

The old carts have evolved into more sophisticated RMU’s (retail merchandising units) and what is now known as the specialty retail industry. The industry has grown to include pop-up retail store concepts, food trucks, automated retail vending, experience retail, seasonal concepts, carts and kiosks.
