[PLACES] : Torvehallerne market, Copenhagen

“Copenhagen hot spot – Torvehallerne is one of the city’s biggest attractions” – SCT August 2014 – Read the full article here

Key points :
– Impressive footfall : 4,7 million visitors per year after three years in business
– Stalls size statement : from10 to 50 m2
– Location success : a sign of a successful urban regeneration or (and?) cities “gentrification”?
– Hagens (the architect) assertion : “…/… when you come home, you have a lot of stuff you didn’t expect to buy…”
We could add that online commerce provides stuff you need and sometimes you can’t find elsewhere; both are then complementary.
Conclusion :
“A good market (as all retail*) is about seduction”
