Sector experts say there is no need for new malls in Turkey’s big cities, amid heated discussions on the one earmarked for the Taksim Gezi Park area

There appears no need for new shopping malls in Turkey’s big cities, such as the one earmarked for the Taksim Gezi Park area in Istanbul, as the number of malls has increased normal standards considerably and more are being abandoned each day, according to sector experts.

“Turkey’s big cities now suffer from an over-accumulation of malls. Turkey is taking a really dangerous course by building too many malls,” Murat İzci, founder of KDM Consulting, which provides services to the retail sector, told the Hürriyet Daily News yesterday.
