Growth in trading density (sales per square metre) in 2018 at monitored shopping centres in South Africa and Namibia continued to improve after a lacklustre 2017, according to a retail property barometer.

Sales per square metre in shopping centres - from large super regional malls to neighbourhood 'locals' - continued to grow in March, according to the Clur Report of SA Retail Property, an industry barometer tracking performance at more than two million square metres of retail space in South Africa and Namibia.

The uptick in shopping centre sales out of negative territory is continuing, according to the Clur Report of SA Retail Property Performance for January, an industry barometer.

After months of decline, trading densities across 2.2 million m² of physical retail space in seven provinces of South Africa and in Namibia are trending towards growth, according to an industry barometer.

The traditional shopping centre model is turning on its head, according to indicators emerging from research covering two million square metres of retail space across South Africa.
