The latest edition of the annual Hot 100 Retail Locations has been published by Property Week, and sees Derby as the highest-ranked location in the East Midlands.
Ranked in 21st place, Derby is seen as an outstanding location for retail investment potential, with a large population catchment area and its existing retail offer.
The city has seen its retail sector perform strongly in 2016 with new openings from national brands such as Dr Marten’s, Joules, Cath Kidston and MAC, whilst the independent sector has also grown with new openings alongside expansions.
This is set to continue with brands such as Jack Wills also due to open in the city. The potential is there for significantly more premium brands to locate to Derby in the near future.
