Staying Ahead of Trends: Jamie Grofik, GM of Coconut Point Mall

Bonita Business Podcast with Jamie Grofik of Coconut Point Mall & Coach Darcy Eikenberg (sq)

Lately in business circles, the conventional wisdom has declared that the shopping mall is done, dead, deleted by the ease of quick click buying and to-your-door delivery.

Well, hold up a minute.

Here in Bonita Springs, retail keeps moving forward at Coconut Point Mall, led by general manager Jamie Grofik, my guest for this episode.

I caught up with Jamie in her offices on one of the outdoor mall’s side streets. Jamie’s led Coconut Point for ten years, and has been in retail a total of 30 years with Coconut Point’s owner, the worldwide Simon Property Group.

She manages the 102 acre property with over 140 store tenants—and, her job comes with a golf cart. What’s not to like?

If you’ve been curious about the future of retail in Southwest Florida, you’ll definitely want to listen to my interview with Jamie right now.
