It has become something of a cliché to state that the pandemic has accelerated pre-existing trends, but when it comes to US internal migration, this statement could not be more accurate. Retailers must plan for a future in which suburban consumers constitute an expanding share of their customer base if they wish to succeed in the 21st century.
