This by no means is a ranking based on aesthetics, layouts, size or quality of stores. This is the ranking of the top five malls in Canada in terms of sales per square foot. Surprisingly, or maybe not, Vancouver is home to two of the top malls in the country. Congrats to Oakridge and Pacific Centre.
Here is the quote from a KPMG study that I found while cruising SSP.com:
The top five malls in Canada ranked in order by sales-per-square-foot are: Pacific Centre in Vancouver at $1,255 per square foot; Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto at $1,194 per square foot; Oakridge Centre in Vancouver at $960 per square foot; Sherway Gardens in Toronto at $885 per square foot; and Chinook Centre in Calgary at $882 per square foot.
Kudos Vancouver mall shoppers, kudos.
