SES Survey: Brick-and-mortar Retail is a Key Provider of Local Jobs

In-store Shopping Remains Highly Popular

The pre-Christmas period is the busiest time of the year for retailers. In the wake of the coronavirus-related loss of the spring season, brick-and-mortar retailers, which employ hundreds of thousands of people, are focusing all the more intensively on the weeks leading up to Christmas. In a representative survey conducted by the Linz Market Institute, SES Spar European Shopping Centers collected data from the Austrian public regarding their attitudes toward brick-and-mortar retail. The most important result: For the vast majority of the Austrian population, stationary retail trade is of great importance. The negative influence of multinational online retail platforms, combined with the loss of jobs, the decline in purchasing power, and adverse effects on the cityscape have become increasingly apparent.

SES Survey: The 2020 Christmas Shopping Season Has Begun

One out of Every Four Shoppers Has Already Purchased Christmas Gifts

Austrians have commenced with this year's Christmas preparations – even though the most important season for the retail industry has yet to begin. The results of a survey conducted by the Linz Market Institute, on behalf of SES Spar European Shopping Centers, the largest operator of shopping centers in Austria, have revealed this to be true. A total of 1,000 consumers were surveyed. According to the survey, roughly a quarter (24 percent) of respondents who plan to buy Christmas presents this year will have made their first purchases by the end of October 2020, with 10 percent of those surveyed reporting gift purchases made in September. Two thirds of the population have every intention of spending up to EUR 500 on Christmas presents this year, and one fourth of them will spend even more.

In Its Anniversary Year, OVAL Is Investing in a Sound Experience Unlike Any Other in Europe:

15 Years of OVAL – The Stage in EUROPARK

OVAL, an art and cultural center of great interest to a wide-ranging public, which inspires, entertains, and captivates its visitors time and time again, opened its doors 15 years ago in October 2005 at Salzburg's EUROPARK shopping center. Managing Directors Marcus Wild and Christoph Andexlinger came up with the concept for the center. Back then, the project was viewed with a certain degree of skepticism – and, in many cases, with a fair amount of enthusiasm. Today, the OVAL is one of the most established concert and cabaret stages in Austria. OVAL has carved out a solid place for itself in Salzburg's cultural scene, among artists and audiences alike, thanks to its quality-oriented program, state-of-the-art stage and cinema technology, and its remarkably pleasant ambiance. In celebration of its 15th anniversary, OVAL audiences will be able to enjoy a unique sound experience: a newly installed, revolutionary, 3D sound system – the first of its kind to be used inside any concert hall in the German-speaking world.
