Post Retail Scape Collaborative Main Street

With the global transition from traditional shopping to e-commerce and the change in consumer trends, the main street retail, Big Box stores, and malls which were a de facto social space for American small towns have transformed into redundant infrastructure. The repercussions of this have highly impacted social interaction, local economy, existing infrastructure, jobs, and services. This gives an opportunity to redefine a new retail module that spurs from a bottom-up approach through the main street revival and by providing experiences and awareness to consumers along with establishing a shared collaborative platform for small businesses by sharing space, energy, resources, waste management, and storage. This sharing of assets not only reduces cost and carbon emission but also funnels the local economy, promotes interaction, elevates jobs and social equity. It further encourages collaborative consumption in the Hudson Valley.
