Follow-up of changes in businesses on 56 shopping streets in Paris – Note BDRues 2015

Note BDRues 2015
The surveys of changes in ground floor business premises carried out within the framework of BDRues were the subject of a follow-up in June 2015 of 56 busy shopping streets, selected, from among a wide range, by the City of Paris, the Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Apur.  A total of a little over 11,100 premises were identified of which almost 9,900 were occupied by shops and commercial services, i.e. over 89%.
This note sums up the changes observed between June 2014 and June 2015 using the results of field surveys carried out on the terrain.
The main results worth noting from this study are, on the one hand a reduction in the number of premises in operation on the 56 shopping streets and on the other a decrease in the number of vacant premises (-28 units). A closer analysis of the results shows very little change in the number of shops and commercial services (-15 establishments) but reveals in particular another decrease in shops connected with fashion (-44 establishments), as well as commercial services and agencies (-18 establishments), and stores dealing in interior decoration (-12 shops). Certain activities have remained stable, such as cultural and leisure outlets (-1 establishment), stores for DIY/gardening and car/motorbike spares. On the other hand, increases were observed particularly concerning food shops (+27 establishments), restaurants and cafés (+18 establishments), and health and beauty businesses (+13 establishments).
After increasing between 2013 and 2014, the number of vacant premises identified in June 2015 has now gone  down (-28 establishments).
