European retail investment reached €33 billion in the first nine months of the year, the highest total for this period since 2007, according to the latest research from CBRE. For Q3 alone, investment volumes reached €11.1 billion, a 23% increase on turnover for the same quarter in 2013.
The majority of European shoppers (88%) want a good range of retailers and an inclusive shopping experience when deciding where to shop. Cleanliness, price and convenience remain the most important factors for all consumers, but the importance of a social experience whilst shopping, continues to be of significant focus for the younger shopper (18-24 year olds), according to the major new research from global property advisor CBRE.
