It's not quite as simple as that though. The playing field is not level. Among other things, zoning bylaws put big boxes at an advantage. In some cases the bylaws make big box the only model that is legal AND will make money. By zoning large swaths of land as retail, disallowing mixed use development, allowing fields of parking, we leave developers with few profitable choices BUT single destination large format stores.
