“Best year ever” for Portimão Retail Center

Shopping || 2014 has been hailed “the best year ever” for Portimão Retail Center (PRC).

Cushman & Wakefield (C&W), the company that manages the retail centre, has announced increases in sales (+14%) and visitors (+9%) compared to the previous year. It also stressed that all the retail centre’s commercial spaces are filled.

“It is the centre’s best year since we opened in 2009,” said PRC manager Ana Antunes, adding that expectations are “high” for 2015 too.

Part of last year’s success is believed to be related to the opening of second-hand store Cash Express, which buys and sells used everything from CDs, DVDs and videogames to musical instruments and household items.

The 12,000 square metre retail centre also features stores such as Worten, Sports Zone, Calçado Guimarães, C&A, Mini Preço, Casa, Bricomax and Opticália, as well as eateries Burger Ranch and MySelf.
