Retail Row is an area on the Battle Royale map located at east coordinates G6 and H6, northeast of Lazy Lake and south of Dirty Docks. It is a retail store complex with a wide parking lot and a residential neighborhood beside the commercial area that consists mostly of houses.
Retail Row was removed when in Week 10 of Season 8, during the "Unvaulting Event", the Volcano erupted, destroying the entire shopping district of Retail Row, along with Tilted Towers. A taco shop and the residential district survived the eruption.
At the start of Chapter 2 Season 1, Retail Row was added to the new map, along with two other POI's from the old map. It is no longer contained within a rift zone or inhabited by cube monsters.
Every Fortnitemares the empty shop is converted into the Hey Boo! Shop for Halloween.
