With the holiday shopping season in the rearview (phew), retail and revenues make for timely conversation topics. The dynamics of how and where we shop have shifted significantly, the crowded mall parking lots of yesteryear have given way to stoops crowded with Amazon packages. The concentration of revenue streams have migrated towards a few very large tech companies over the last 20 years, since the advent of the internet.
