London should open its doors to new food hall concepts, more health restaurants and brace itself for cashless cashiers, according to New York retail guru Chase Welles.
Welles is the executive vice president of New York-based SCG Retail, the urban division of Shopping Centre Group, and represents tenants including Whole Foods and LA Fitness. Shopping Centre Group is based in New York and has 22 offices throughout the US.
SCG Retail and London-based agency Nash Bond formed the Global Retail Group in 2016 – a network connecting retail property advisers across the globe.
EG caught up with Welles and Nash Bond director Richard Scott to discuss transatlantic retail and leisure trends.
