Maybe some of the big retailers are closing brick-and-mortar stores, but plenty of little guys are opening them. I think it really depends on what is being sold. One of my competitors has an estore that has literally ten times as many products as I do, but he does not get much traffic partly because what he is selling is exactly the same as what most of other estores in our niche are selling. So he opened a brick-and-mortar store and is doing okay with that because there is no competition in the area.
