I came across an offbeat article that I had to share with you. Something I’ve never experienced and find interesting given the change New Jersey has just gone through.

A few days ago, the way we shop changed forever. On May 4, grocery stores were no longer legally allowed to put things you buy in plastic or even paper bags. Now you need to bring your own reusables. Other stores are also breaking the new law if they dare to hand you a single-use plastic bag. But paper is OK if it’s not a grocery store.

Buyers are still trying to get used to it. I’ve spoken to grocery store workers who say the complaints aren’t as bad as they thought and others who say they’ve been the butt of really nasty pick words.

I’ve seen frustrated shoppers raise their hands in stores and mumble out loud how stupid they were for forgetting to bring their bags back from the car. Still others forget them at home.

Will we ever get used to this nonsense?

This is where this interesting article I came across might provide some insight.

Did you know that we don’t always have wheeled carts, only much smaller hand carts? I imagine this was back when there were fewer foods with preservatives and trips to the grocery store were more than once a week to “stock up” as families tend to do it now.

People hated the idea and refused to try them.

The shopping cart originated in the 1930s, according to CNN. Sylvan Goldman owned grocery stores in Oklahoma and he saw people stop shopping when their hand baskets became heavy and full. He introduced the much larger wheeled baskets that you could push around the store, thinking people would line up just to use them.

Nobody did.

People hated the idea and refused to try them. The women said they pushed prams all day and wouldn’t push another wheeled contraption yet. The men talked about how it would make them weak not to carry their own things.

Goldman, knowing that these complaints and concerns were ridiculous, hired people to pretend to be buyers. Their job was simply to pose as shoppers pushing these shopping carts around stores by filling them with items so that all real shoppers could continue to see other people using them.

It was basically the principle that no one wanted to be the first to dance. Soon real buyers were grabbing them too and the rest was history.

Strange to think that there was a time when no one would touch a shopping cart in a grocery store.

Maybe we’ll get used to this new reusable bag thing after all.

Reid says of his new work that the title floodplain “implies both rich fertility and possible danger” and that the work includes “rhythmic patterns that echo throughout the piece and morph in various ways”. Reid started the piece pre-pandemic, as it was originally slated to premiere in May 2020, explains that she later “broke it to pieces and reshaped it to resonate with me right now.” .

Martín says: “For many years, LACO has enjoyed a very special association with Ellen Reid, who is one of the most important composers of her generation. I’m so happy to be able to bring her some new work floodplain to life and share it with audiences across Southern California. It is also a distinct pleasure for LACO to present two of its own outstanding principal artists – principal violin Margaret Batjer and principal cello Andrew Shulman – on Brahms’ Double Concerto for Violin and Cello in which the two solo instruments share a conversation music like old friends. ”

Marcus & Millichap Capital Corporation (MMCC) has arranged a $39.4 million construction financing for French Valley Marketplace, a grocery-anchored shopping mall located in French Valley, California. Funding was secured by Brandon Wilhite, Senior Managing Director of MMCC, along with Sunny Sajnani, Senior Managing Director, and Todd McNeill, Senior Managing Director, of IPA. The editing team is based in MMCC’s Dallas office.

The property is a fully licensed 22-acre commercial development project led by a partnership between Southlake, Texas-based Trinity Investors and Pasadena, California-based Halftery Development Company. The site is conveniently located at the northeast corner of State Highway 79 and Thompson Road and is anchored by tenants such as Grocery Outlet, Rite Aid, EoS Fitness, McDonald’s, Autozone and 7-Eleven.

“This was a complex and exciting project with many moving parts, which required coordination and creativity from all parties involved,” said Brandon Wilhite.

The non-recourse construction loan will provide funds to complete the horizontal and vertical construction of the project. Trez Capital, a Vancouver-based diversified real estate investment firm, acted as the construction lender for the transaction.

“I really appreciate the attention to detail and focus of the MMCC team. Their expertise, knowledge and experience were essential in bringing this complicated financing to fruition,” said Jay Fuquay, Trinity Investors.

ShopCore Properties is creating a lot of buzz.

The real estate company is installing beehives in 30 of its more than 50 malls across the country, in recognition of Earth Day and to further its sustainability initiatives. Beekeepers are recruited.

No more WWD

Last year, private company ShopCore piloted an urban beekeeping program installed at two properties in 2021.

“Sustainability is central to our mission, mandate and purpose,” Corinne Rico, director of sustainability at ShopCore Properties, said in a statement on Monday. “From our properties to our communities, putting the environment first is part of how we do business. Installing beehives is an additional layer to our sustainability and environmental goals. Bees play an extremely important role in a thriving ecosystem and the honey they produce is rich in antioxidants. Bees are therefore beneficial not only for the environment but also for your health.

ShopCore will install the hives in 2022 and harvest the honey in the fall. The honey will then be packaged and offered to the communities as a gift. Each hive will have about 50,000 bees and will be maintained by local beekeepers, the company said. ShopCore has partnered with Alvéole, an urban beekeeping company.

The majority of the hives will be located on the top of the roofs of the building, with some on the green spaces of the property, including behind the parking lots.

Rico said each ShopCore property will have its own set of solutions to advance sustainability, and overall the company seeks to partner with tenants to achieve sustainability goals.

ShopCore said its sustainability solutions include energy benchmarking and tracking; green rental practices; reduce energy, water and waste; install renewable energy systems; integrating sustainability into all business decisions and installing electric vehicle charging stations in its parking lots.

ShopCore, a subsidiary of The Blackstone Group, operates more than 50 community, electric and grocery centers, nearly all in outdoor formats, covering approximately 20 million square feet in 19 states. Retail tenants include Walmart, Target, Whole Foods, Ross Stores and Home Goods, among others. Principal properties include One Colorado in Pasadena, California; Downtown Palm Beach Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and The Shops At SkyView Center, an enclosed mall in Flushing, NY

ShopCore operates The Shops at La Jolla Village in La Jolla, California.

ShopCore Properties is creating a lot of buzz.

The real estate company is installing beehives in 30 of its more than 50 malls across the country, in recognition of Earth Day and to further its sustainability initiatives. Beekeepers are recruited.

Last year, private company ShopCore piloted an urban beekeeping program installed at two properties in 2021.

“Sustainability is central to our mission, mandate and purpose,” Corinne Rico, director of sustainability at ShopCore Properties, said in a statement on Monday. “From our properties to our communities, putting the environment first is part of how we do business. Installing beehives is an additional layer to our sustainability and environmental goals. Bees play an extremely important role in a thriving ecosystem and the honey they produce is rich in antioxidants. Bees are therefore beneficial not only for the environment but also for your health.

ShopCore will install the hives in 2022 and harvest the honey in the fall. The honey will then be packaged and offered to the communities as a gift. Each hive will have about 50,000 bees and will be maintained by local beekeepers, the company said. ShopCore has partnered with Alvéole, an urban beekeeping company.

The majority of the hives will be located on the top of the roofs of the building, with some green spaces on the property, including behind the parking lots.

Rico said each ShopCore property will have its own set of solutions to advance sustainability, and overall the company seeks to partner with tenants to achieve sustainability goals.

ShopCore said its sustainability solutions include energy benchmarking and tracking; green rental practices; reduce energy, water and waste; install renewable energy systems; integrating sustainability into all business decisions and installing electric vehicle charging stations in its parking lots.

ShopCore, a subsidiary of The Blackstone Group, operates more than 50 community, electric and grocery centers, nearly all in outdoor formats, covering approximately 20 million square feet in 19 states. Retail tenants include Walmart, Target, Whole Foods, Ross Stores and Home Goods, among others. Principal properties include One Colorado in Pasadena, California; Downtown Palm Beach Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, and The Shops At SkyView Center, an enclosed center in Flushing, NY

ShopCore operates The Shops at La Jolla Village in La Jolla, California.

JH Real Estate Partners Inc. in Newport Beach has purchased the Inland Empire Center in Fontana for $70.5 million, according to CBRE.

The brokerage said the 309,500 square foot mall located at 16701-16873 Valley Blvd. has 16 plots and tenants, including Cardenas Market, Ross, Planet Fitness, Regency Theatres, Burlington, Taco Bell and several casual restaurants.

CBRE’s Patrick Wade and Alex Kozakov represented the seller, The Baralat Co. in Westlake Village.

“The sale of Inland Empire Center illustrates the huge resurgence in demand for centers anchored in well-located Hispanic grocery stores in Southern California in-between markets,” Kozakov said.

He said the brokerage had received several offers for the property.

CBRE researchers say retail vacancy levels will decline across the region, leading to higher rental rates through 2026.
