Expansion analysis 2022
Whether it is expansion to extend their own chain store network, restructuring to improve and optimise locations and rental conditions in the wake of the Corona crisis or market entry in Germany - the possible motives for renting retail space are as varied as the brands behind them. Accordingly, on the basis of current lettings and openings, different motivations can be assumed behind the expansion plans of active retailers. The large pool of active retailers from different sectors with a wide range of location preferences suggests that there are definitely developments that represent countermovements to the much-cited thesis of the abandonment and standardisation of city centres.
The most active retailers in various sectors in German city centre locations (deals since 2020) can be found in the BNPPRE expansion analysis.
