Almeria to be tops for shops

The largest shopping centre in Andalucia is set to open in Almeria this autumn.

The Torrecardenas Shopping and Entertainment Centre will have cinemas, 150 shops, the first food court in Andalusia and a children’s multi-adventure area.

Top shops including Primark, Leroy Merlin, Media Markt, Zara, Pull&Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka and Stradivarius have already signed up for space in the complex, just five minutes from Almeria city centre via the Avenida del Mediterraneo. Surprisingly, Almeria has the top-spending consumers but the fewest shopping areas with 275 square metres of commercial space for every 1,000 residents compared to an average of 698 in Spain. Now that is being rectified by the Torrecardenas complex.

When you get the chance to walk through the commercial centre, you will see it pays homage to Almeria’s rich film-making history complete with a floor simulating a red carpet along with the interplay of lights creating a theatrical feel. The name Torrecardenas itself has a star above the first A as a metaphor for the stars of the Hollywood Walk of Fame and also a sheriff’s badge indicating that the region has provided a natural setting for many Western movies. Also this €125-million shopping centre planned by Seville-based Bogaris Retail brings together large specialist retailers, who will attract the bulk of consumers, as well as smaller fashion and leisure brands. Unlike many other covered shopping centres it will have fashion and leisure at the forefront instead of being based around a hypermarket.
