This will increase the convenience of the shopping experience to the customer as similar shops are grouped together which makes it easier to find your way around. Meadowhall has built up a well-established loyal customer following.

For example meadowhall recycles a lot of the waste from its tenants therefore they are able to use this as a means of promoting themselves to the area of the market that this may appeal to. Meadowhall have won numerous awards, which will give another angle of advertising and again differentiate themselves from competitors and contribute to building a good reputation it creates a unique selling point for the centre.
