Two decades ago the first shopping centre was opened in Poland. Since then, the market has undergone several revolutions. Today, it is not only trade, but also, and perhaps most importantly, added value. That is why today's shopping centres are evolving, and in their everyday activities they focus on building their own identity that distinguishes them in the local market. Objects no longer grow like mushrooms after rain, and this low growth is due to market saturation. Expansion and modernisation are becoming a standard. The demand is supported by a steady increase in the purchasing power of Polish consumers and a change in their lifestyle. The fashion for spending time outside the home is also growing. Undoubtedly, a big challenge for the whole sector was to adapt its activities to the trade ban introduced in 2018 on Sunday.
