Shopping Mall Retail

In the past twelve years, China saw a proliferation of shopping mall openings that was perhaps unprecedented worldwide in terms of scope. This mall boom took place even as rising online consumption was changing the nature of the mall business itself, shifting the typical shopping mall tenant mix towards dining, education and leisure services, and forcing mall owners to increase foot traffic with public events and digital marketing.

A foreign retailer just entering the market may feel overwhelmed when trying to determine the best locations in a big city like Shanghai that now has dozens upon dozens of busy malls. Moreover, while average mall space may be easy to come by, the best spaces can be difficult to secure due to fierce competition.

With extensive knowledge of the shopping mall landscape and strong connections to different retail property landlords, NAI Sofia Group Shanghai can help you identify the best available space and help you secure it.

We can also help you maximize the value of your space with our interior design and construction project management services, and the innovative thinking of our consultants.
