2017 | Russia | Retail Market

In the first half of 2017, 237,000 sqm of retail space in quality shopping centres was completed in Russian regions, which is two times more than in the same period in Moscow. In St. Petersburg, however, no shopping centres were opened in the last six months. A third of all regional completions occurred in Voronezh, and the largest openings were phase III of MFC Chizhov Gallery in Voronezh and SEC Riviera in Lipetsk. In addition, three Soviet Department stores were opened after reconstruction ‒ TSUM in Voronezh and Yekaterinburg and Bolshoy GUM in Vladivostok, which testifies to the ongoing trend for the renovation of outdated shopping centres and the increased level of competition and the battle for customers.
