  • 92% at least monthly
  • By contrast, 15% of consumers nationally visit large regional shopping centres weekly
  • Retail parks draw 19% of shoppers at least once a week, rising to 53% for high streets

The report also states 44% of trips to community shops are over an hour, longer still in London. It seems to dispel the though that such shopping centres have had their day. But, Morgan Garfield, managing director at Ellandi, says: “Successful shopping centres have to be relevant to their core shoppers.
