The decision to launch a new format of Westfalika stores for shopping centers is due to the fact that shopping centers in large cities are increasing in popularity and gradually pulling off the consumer flow. In the next five years, retail revenue will be redistributed between the street format and the shopping center in a 50/50 ratio. This has already happened in Moscow and St. Petersburg, and this trend is spreading across the regions.
The area of new Westfalika stores for the shopping center is 100–120 sq. m. Investments in the opening of one store amount to 7-8 million rubles, taking into account the inventory. By the end of the year Obuv Rossii will open such stores in Moscow, Tyumen and Yekaterinburg. The new format of Westfalika stores will allow Obuv Rossii to attract a younger and more solvent audience visiting shopping centers to the stores. In the future, Obuv Rossii will open such stores throughout the country. The share of the shopping center in the company's retail revenue will be increased to 50% (now 15–20%), writes ksonline.ru
