With the opening of Docks Bruxsel, the question arises where the customer prefers to do their shopping: are these peripheral shopping malls what the Belgian customer wants?
Research of Qrf City Retail, in collaboration with Q&A, shows that for fashion items (clothing, shoes, jewellery, beauty and health, …) the inner-city centre is still preferred. That same investigation also tells us that physical shopping remains the most popular: only 17% of the customers shop more frequently online.More info
This week, the traditional winter sales have started. Not only the retailers themselves, but also the cities do their absolute best to make things as pleasant as possible for the customer. After the lack of enthusiasm from shoppers last year, due to the terrorist attacks in Brussels, the capital has now made a major effort. The skating rinks will be open until later at night and if you came by car the first day of the sales, you could park for free. In Antwerp, too, the sales Sunday, winter barbecue and the ending of Winter in Antwerp ensure a varied shopping experience.More info
