Sales at London’s Westfield shopping centres hit £2bn

London’s two Westfield shopping emporiums in Shepherd’s Bush and Stratford together made sales totalling more than £2bn last year.

The Australian owners of the gargantuan malls said that around 66 million visitors, equivalent to the population of the entire UK, flocked to the shopping havens.

The company said that the two spaces each recorded annual sales of £1bn, but said that the Stratford destination is growing sales at almost twice the rate of the older Shepherd’s Bush mall, which is now five years old.

Fashion stores, which generate a third of the stores’ sales, saw a 5.7% year-on-year rise in sales, while revenue from cinemas and restaurants increased by almost 13%.

A third Westfield shopping centre is currently under development in Croydon.
