Almanac of shopping centres 2011

Almanac of shopping cent.

Flexibility in operations

Making decisions without having sufficient knowledge is uncomfortable. Shopping centre industry is in a unique position. it is influenced by the situation on the property market on the one hand and by the situation in retail on the other. both of these strongly affect each other.
Retail as well as real property industry are facing challenges. E-commerce has changed the way transactions are made. Some products features are precise enough so that one does not need to see them with his or her own eyes in order to purchase them. this applies particularly to electronics and household appliances, multimedia or books. e-commerce enters also the field of fashion retail. New concepts appear, e.g. “order & pick up” – sometimes straight from a warehouse instead of a shop. it does influence shopping centres. Flexibility in space design, revitalisation, expansion of already existing shopping centres and introduction of new cost-savings technologies are becoming a necessity.

We would like to thank companies and institutions that supported the preparation of the Almanac. the substantial content of its second edition was contributed by: Cushman & Wakefield, DTZ, Jones Lang La-Salle, Polish Council of Shopping Centres, International Council of Shopping Centres, TPA Horwath. We are grateful to the mayors of cities, marshals and voivodes for comments on investment possibilities in particular regions of our country as well as to owners, investors and management companies, which have provided information concerning their shopping centres. It is thanks to them that the list of 300 operating and realised shopping centres in Poland has been created. Presenting the most current information about the industry in the Almanac, we hope that it will provide
our Readers with a bit of comfort in making decisions.
