September retail sales data has confirmed what we are seeing on the street; a steady if cautious recovery.

The retail sector is slowly coming to life after four years of painful adjustment which has seen the emergence of a ‘tenant’s market’.

While landlords of street shops remain on the back foot, the larger territorial centres are proving relatively immune to the downtown.

The gap between the malls and street shops has narrowed considerably and tenants are now finding that a prime street front pitch can be a viable alternative to taking space in a nearby mall.

In a mixed market some trade categories are performing well and pharmacies in particular are expanding aggressively at the moment.

kamaco prime street shop rental indices remained flat over the third quarter while rents in prime malls continued to drift off marginally.
