This index provides a snapshot of the regional shopping centres performance during 2019 versus 2018. CBRE is closely monitoring the impact of Covid-19 performance on the retail market. In order to understand the full impact of all protective measures that were put in place and the potential change of consumer behaviour that lockdown measures and Covid-19 could have, it is important to understand the 2019 retail performance. In addition, high emphasis is placed on predicting retail market recovery and for such an outlook, long term retail trends and understanding the retail market specifics are valuable. For further information relating to the impact of Covid-19 on real estate in the CEE region or globally, please contact us.
