Unique retail environment

Next week will be back to the regular lease administration blog, but, for now, a little more Mexican retail. One sight in Puebla that does not show up on TripAdvisor is truly “experiential retail” – Container City. Puebla is very much a university town, and Container City is an area designed for those students. It is an area with bars, restaurants and some retail all set up in former shipping containers. While my wife and I were (by far) the oldest people there at 10:30 pm (my son said it did not get really busy until 12:00 am) and were way outside of the target demographic, we absolutely loved the concept – and the experience.

Liability issues aside, it was exceptionally well done.
