Retailers vacancy rate and occupancy rate in the Netherlands

In 2017, Retailers represent about 50% of the shops listed by Codata in the Netherlands.

Their presence is nevertheless unequal and depends on the types of sites: 61% were listed in city centres, 4% in retail areas and 35% in shopping centres. These figures are representative of the attractiveness of city centres for organised distribution networks in the country.
