Samara overtakes Moscow in terms of the number of retail space

According to the results of 2022, on average, in cities with a million inhabitants, there are 507 square meters of high-quality retail space per thousand inhabitants, analysts of the consulting company NF Group calculated.

Since 2019, this figure has increased by 7.4%, with the maximum growth recorded in three cities (excluding Moscow and St. Petersburg) – Perm (+49%), Kazan (+14%) and Chelyabinsk (+9%). For the sixth year in a row, Samara has been the leader in the ranking in terms of the provision of the population with retail space – 771 sq. m. m per thousand inhabitants (the last large facility opened here in 2019, but due to a decrease in the population, the saturation of shopping facilities has increased). Perm has become one of the most actively developing cities in terms of increasing the number of retail facilities. If earlier the city occupied the last place in the ranking, then since 2019 it has risen by three positions and moved to 12th place, increasing the figure by 49%, to 384 sq. m/1,000 people thanks to the opening of two shopping centers in 2021-2022.

The top five in terms of retail space availability include Samara, Yekaterinburg (679 sq. m. per thousand inhabitants), Nizhny Novgorod (583 sq. m.), Moscow (580 sq. m.) and Voronezh (521 sq. m.), which displaced from the top -5 Rostov-on-Don.
