News Shopper: Marc Myers Marc Myers

Marc Myers took on the role as centre manager just before Christmas and has had a long career in the retail sector.

He said his first few months have been "hectic" but added he is really looking forward to overseeing "big changes" at Intu Bromley.

He told News Shopper: "The changes in the business are still so fresh but I’ve got a great team here and it’s a great place to be. It excites me to be here."

Mr Myers started out managing Marks and Spencer stores and described himself as a "poacher-turned-gamekeeper" having made the transition to shopping centres 10 years ago.

He explained: "I’ve seen lots of areas - I’ve been in management, buying and shopping centres.

"I can see how they can help town centre regeneration.

"I’m so passionate about business and retail. I want to see Bromley thrive and feel my experiences allows me to do something here."

Mr Myers is married with three children. He lives in Essex.

The country's finances have nothing to do with a private company who owns shopping centres? There is more money in the UK than ever before, the £1 trillion debt is the UK government's debt not intu properties PLC. intu properties PLC has a net worth of over £3.5 billion.

I am not sure if you are aware but the shops pay to rent space in the shopping centre. Here is an example of the annual rent asking prices at intu Bromley:

Unit 203 - 208 (currently Toys R Us) - £380,000
Unit 55 (currently Select) - £180,000
Unit 18 (currently Build a Bear) - £140,000
Unit 22 (Currently Tresor) - £90,000

If you take in to (or intu) account in intu Bromley alone there are over 140 units, retail space, advertising space and parking then take in to account that intu properties owns or majority owns 15 other shopping centres then it is easy to see where the money is coming from. It is probably more the case "are they only spending that much?" than where the money is coming from
