+ 0.2 % on an annual basis: 5 months were positive, 2 months were the same, and 5 months were negative; and this in spite of the fact that the weather conditions were not favourable for indoor shopping centres compared to 2016 (23 % less rain, 2.2 % warmer, 11.1 % more sunshine hours), as well as less opening days in 2017 compared to 2016 (avg. 2.4 days: - 0.8 %)

  • 1ste quarter: -0,3%
  • 2de quarter: +0,4%
  • 3de quarter : +4,7% (+147% more rain !)

Sales

+ 0.2 % on an annual basis: 6 months positive and 6 months negative

September: + 17 %, but October: - 13 % (visitor evolutions in these months show less pronounced differences) further sales evolutions very similar with visitor figures but September and December show stronger sales evolution compared to visitors evolution; March and October are the other way round.

2 projects had a sales increase of + 5 %; one project a decline in sales > - 5 %
