Retail Council of Canada (RCC) is collecting sales productivity numbers for Canada’s top shopping centres, which will be released this fall as a Special Edition Canadian Retailer: Physical Retail 2019.  Contributors (paid content) and advertisers are also being sought to add additional insight into the latest trends being seen in Canada’s top malls, as well as bricks and mortar retail in general, which are seeing remarkable transformations as the industry shifts and consumer tastes change. 

The study will rank Canada’s top shopping centres in terms of annual sales per square foot as in years past and will compare these numbers to previous year’s data. This year’s study will include an analysis from the study’s author, Craig Patterson, and will also expand to include editorial content those seeking to provide insight, via paid content. Topics in the study will include how shopping centres are transforming into complete communities that are creating experiences by using cutting-edge technologies while embracing entertainment, enhanced food and beverage options, and even flexible work spaces. 

Retail Council of Canada’s Shopping Centre Study has become an authoritative information document for the industry. Further thought leadership will make the study an even more robust resource that will be released in the Fall of 2019 to thousands of readers and industry professionals and decision makers with spending power. The findings of the report will be of particular interest to the heads of mid-to-large retailers, operations and store planners, marketers, merchandisers, sales and real estate executives, urban planners, designers and entertainment developers.

The study’s initial findings will be showcased by Craig Patterson at this year’s Retail Council of Canada Brick and Mortar Forum, which is being held in downtown Toronto on the morning of November 19, 2019.

The Special Edition Canadian Retailer: Physical Retail 2019 will be promoted in Retail Council of Canada’s ‘Retail This Week’  weekly newsletter with more than 25,000 subscribers, through Canadian Retailer magazine’s 32,500+ subscribers, Retail Council of Canada’s website with millions of viewers annually, as well as social media channels. It will also be advertised heavily across Retail Insider’s platforms that include its website, daily newsletter, and social media channels that also see millions of viewers annually.
