PEOPLE IN THE EUROPEAN RETAIL REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY

Recruitments, promotions and appointments in the European Retail Real Estate Industry.

Reimagining department stores in Europe

Department stores are a key part of the retail mix in Europe. With bleak news about the sector blowing across the Atlantic, we thought it was time to take a close look at just how things were faring here in Europe. ICSC’s research has uncovered both shared challenges and fundamental differences.

Placemaking is not a blueprint business

With the advent of e-commerce, stores are being used by retailers to differentiate themselves from e-commerce platforms, providing shopping experiences that cannot be reproduced at home.

RENOWNED GLOBAL FASHION BRANDS NO LONGER GUARANTEE SUCCESS

Until recently, securing a renowned global fashion brand as a shopping mall anchor was often considered a guarantee for success. This was particularly the case in CEE, where many such retailers were just beginning to enter the market.

Whoever wants to get out, should do so!

In the words of the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus, “The only constant is change.” Applied in more modern terms: Only one who remains flexible and adapts his or her decisions to the constant change, can achieve ideal results in the long term. This is also true for participants in the German real estate sector.

Knowing where the wind blows

Would you visit a café where you knew that a constant cold draft would blow onto your neck, leaving you shivering as you quickly drank your coffee, unable to truly relax? Would you take time to go window-shopping if you knew that you would be constantly battered by turbulent wind?
