THE team that runs intu Braehead has won the accolade of running Scotland’s top shopping centre for the second year in a row.
GlobalData has released its Top 50 UK Shopping Centres Report for 2019 after measuring the requirements and data from both tenants and shoppers to give a comprehensive review of the country’s shopping malls.
The intu Braehead centre came 13th in the whole of the UK – one place higher than last year – and was ranked the best in Scotland. Other intu centres throughout the country also featured in eight of the top 20 places in the survey
The shopping centre was judged on its turnover, footfall, area, sales density, occupancy rate, spend per visitor and dwell times. GlobalData also measured potential for future spending on retail, leisure and food; the provision of key facilities and meeting shopper expectations.
Peter Beagley, centre director said: “We said when we were awarded the top spot in Scotland last year that we wouldn’t rest on our laurels. It’s pleasing to know we are continually improving the experience of people who visit us and the service to our tenants.
“We aim to give retailers and leisure operators the best platform for them to do business and provide visitors with a great day out, offering a variety of shopping and leisure activities they can enjoy with family and friends.”
