‘Something’s always happening here. If you’re bored in New York, it’s probably your fault.’
Myrna Loy probably referred to New York’s bustling shopping streets and centres as she verbalized this thought of hers. With about 10,000 different stores within, New York City’s 70 shopping centres rank among the top ten most visited centres across the globe. These sky-scraping buildings have everything you could need, from groceries, electronics, and house care to self-care and health to lifestyle.
While the more, the merrier, choosing which one of the shopping centres to go to on a regular Wednesday evening for grocery shopping or hang out with friends for a relaxing Saturday might seem like a hefty task. Therefore, this StarInsights report presents a comprehensive analysis of the highly commended and most reviewed shopping centres across New York City to help you decide where you should head to more easily.
It comes off as no surprise that the shopping centre market is a remarkably competitive one these days. Unfortunately, the shopping industry in the US has been declining faster than its economy in the past five years, i.e., 2017-2022. More specifically, the COVID-19 pandemic was particularly difficult for US shopping centres, where about 5000 of them closed down in just 2020. Nevertheless, with the curfew and pandemic restrictions being lifted this year, new-found faith that the industry will flourish again is up in the air. Economists have predicted that shopping centres will grow with a CAGR of 5.9% within the upcoming six years. This is good news for retail stores, shopping centre owners, and customers alike since not only does everyone in New York love shopping, but an annual revenue of about $2 billion is exchanged in the industry.
Hence, without further ado, let’s turn to some statistics about New York City’s shopping centres. By the end of this report, we’d hope you know exactly where to go when you’re looking to spend a day out in NYC.
