BEYOND RETAIL REPORT
Posted by Ellandi on 13th May 2019
The need for change throughout a UK retail landscape currently undergoing profound structural transformation has been well documented in recent years. But with 49% of retail centres in the UK over spaced, the rise of online retailing, uncertainty around occupier sustainability and demand for retail space at an all-time low, how can physical retail ensure it continues to succeed and remain relevant?
This week saw the launch of our Beyond Retail Report in collaboration with Knight Frank. We have investigated the impact that non-retail uses, as well as the general environment and experience, can have on a space using responses from 9,500 shopper interviews conducted across 30 Community Shopping Centres, the most comprehensive and geographically diverse consumers survey of its kind.
