Retail & leisure

November 15, 2020

Total sales in Scotland increased by 0.8% in March 2018, in comparison to the previous year. Food retailers in particular have had healthy growth with demand for expansion of chains such as Starbucks, Tim Hortons and Pret a Manger both for standard shops and drive-through. High Streets and shopping centres continue to seek alternative, non-retail occupiers to fill vacant units. Leisure, health and fitness, cinema and bar/restaurant uses are becoming widespread targets across many former shopping locations. (Source: Ryden)
