Trevor Wood Associates annual retail destination rankings are announced
Trevor Wood Associates’ Going Shopping – The Definitive Guide to Shopping Centres 2020 has named Westfield London as the UK’s number 1 shopping centre for the second year running. Westfield Stratford City and Bluewater have also maintained second and third place.
Many of the twenty-eight leading schemes have plans to expand or enhance their tenant mix, which will likely further consolidate the dominance of a Premier Division of shopping centres.
Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet in Ellesmere Port is, for the eleventh year running, considered to be the leading outlet centre.
In shopping parks, Fort Kinnaird in Newcraighall, Edinburgh has overtaken Glasgow Fort in Easterhouse, Glasgow, and following an extension, Rushden Lakes Shopping Park in Rushden enters the top five for the first time.
In retailers, there has been little change among the top 10 retailers within shopping centres, with Costa Coffee retaining its number one slot and Card Factory in second. Boots has moved up two places to third and is the leading anchor store for the top 100 schemes joint with H & M. New Look has dropped from fourth to seventh place following the closure of a large number of stores, whilst Greggs has moved up one place to fifth.
