Consumers want more shopping hours

Consumers know what they want from shopping centres - they demand the presence of certain retailers as well as extended trading hours, according to the Broll Shopper Segmentation Report 2016 Volume 1.

In South Africa, 50% of shoppers see stopping for something to eat and drink as an important part of the experience when visiting a centre.

Rapid urbanisation, population growth and an undersupply of formal retail space continue to drive growth in the retail sector across Sub-Saharan Africa.

According to a recent CBRE Global Investor Intentions Survey 2015, 53% of global investors plan to increase their investment purchases this year.

Most consumers still expect the physical mall to be their shopping channel of choice in two years despite an expected increase in e-commerce.

Snapshot of consumer shopping habits

Apart from clean and safe shopping centres, South African consumers want an overall experience of visiting the shopping destination.

Both global retailers and retail property investors are taking advantage of South Africa's appeal as a competitive retail destination, according to research released by global real estate advisory CBRE recently.
