New product ranges, more catering elements and up-trading: Germany’s grocers are investing more in shop fitting and store design. Expenditure in the sector is one of the most dynamic areas of growth.
In 2019, retailers in Germany invested a total of EUR 7.9 billion in the construction, technology and design of their stores, according to the EHI Shop Monitor 2020, whose results were being presented at the EuroShop in Düsseldorf.

"The focus is clearly on conversion and renovation measures," says EHI shop-fitting expert Claudia Horbert, "but investments in new openings are also being increased again across all retail sectors.

Food stores, drugstores and price-oriented non-food speciality stores showed particularly strong growth. Food retailers invested 735 euros per square metre of sales area - 15 per cent more than three years ago - in shop fitting and store design.

The EHI sees the background for this plus in the regular listing of new products, especially in the convenience range, an expansion of the gastronomic offers and "trading-up" measures. In addition, expenditure on energy-efficient refrigeration technology has also influenced the investment behaviour of traditional retailers.

Investments by drugstores rose by 10.3 per cent to 505 euros per square meter of sales space. (nis)
