fashionable london - the top market for international retailers
London remains the top market with the highest percentage of international retailers. The market has grown such that in 1998, retailers needed 200 stores to reach 50% of the population, now they need only 80. CBRE's Eric Eastman and Kevin Farrow, explain what makes the UK market so attractive and which countries these new entrants are coming from.
