Strip malls outnumber conventional shopping center malls throughout the country by a huge amount. Some types of Tacoma strip malls have large anchor tenants but these types of developments are generally referred to as power centers. There are only very few of this type of power center mall in comparison to the Tacoma smaller developments.
Tacoma strip malls, whether bustling with business or struggling with fierce competition can be highly profitable to business and shop owners. If the location is advantageous to commerce all the better but a struggling Tacoma strip mall can still be useful and profitable, specialty shops, export stores and other unique businesses give them a competitive edge. Repurposing the space for other commercial uses has proved successful as well.
