This article presents information on retail operator Westfield Shoppingtowns. This is a big leap for the retail centre owner and operator. Until four years ago when Weslfield first entered the local market with the acquisition of the Broadmarsh retail centre in Nottingham in May 2000, it was virtually unknown in Great Britain. But the company has made quite a splash in the local market and is on the verge of almost doubling its investments in Great Britain. The group currently owns seven retail centres in Great Britain. The majority of the group's project work, continue to be outsourced, with the exceptions of any issues that are commercially sensitive.
