NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 17: People walk by an empty retail space in lower Manhattan on April 17, 2017 in New York City. As American's shopping habits continue to migrate online, brick-and-mortar stores across the country are closing at an increased rate. For the first time in nearly two years, retail sales declined two months in a row according to recently released figures from the Commerce Department. Millennials, who often prefer Amazon and other online businesses, are also putting more of their money into vacations and restaurants instead of merchandise. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
