Does Your Center Include First Floor Retail?

From an Ask-NCN Discussion, 2/1/2017

Kim McNamer, Consultant
I am working with NCN on a feasibility study and we are looking for further information for our client pertaining to 1st floor retail and the pros & cons of having this component as part of a nonprofit center. If you are managing some retail at your center, would you please take a few minutes to answer the following questions? This information will also be of great value to us beyond this feasibility study,

1. What is the retail business?
2. How has your experience been with operating this business?
3. Can you provide three key benefits to operating retail in your nonprofit center?
4. Can you provide three cons?
5. What is working?
6. What would you do differently if you had the opportunity to do it over again?

I really appreciate your time in responding.
