I’ve been watching the number of empty shops growing in central Barcelona with increasing alarm. It’s not a rigorous study, but my guess is that at least 20% of retail space in the Eixample district of central Barcelona, within 5 blocks of Paseo de Gracia (Barcelona’s answer to Piccadilly) is empty or with businesses in the process of closing down. This is not a good sign at all.
yes Mark, I’ve noticed it myself – quite alarming and in a top central area as well – it seems that Barcelona is on its last legs – in fact if it wasn’t for the tourist and convention visitors Barcelona would be in deep trouble – anything to do with local politics I wonder? thousands of companies have closed and relocated to other parts of Spain and many international companies are packing their bags as we speak!!!
