There is an area of the economy in Poland, which can easily compete with the richest countries in the world. According to a new report, there are 220 square meters of retail space in shopping malls for every 1,000 inhabitants in Poland. In the past year, four large malls were opened in Kraków, Katowice, Poznań and Gdynia. And there is more to come. Inside, the retail chains often look exactly like others in malls all around the world, from Beijing, Moscow, Tel Aviv to… Radom. Indeed, even medium-sized cities in Poland are now open to the construction of these mega malls. In the next year, large shopping centres will come into being not only in Lublin, Białystok and Olsztyn but also in smaller cities. According to a new report by Cushman & Wakefield there are already more than 11 million square feet of retail space in such malls. “It is interesting to see how aggressive the Polish market is. In 20 years, Poland has managed to reach the same level of retail space as in Western European countries, where it took 30-40 years,” notes business expert Szymon Lukasik.
