The increase in the volume of online shopping is threatening malls and shopping centers.

At least, so said Israel Vizel, director of business development at Tnuport and Yishpro. 

A survey conducted by Israeli companies Tnuport and Yishpro shows that in the past year, more than 80% of Israelis have made at least one purchase on online sites.

This trend is constantly growing and allegedly poses a significant threat to shopping centers, which are losing business as a result.

The powerful e-commerce industry and the change in consumer culture habits require shopping centers to reinvent themselves and become leisure and entertainment centers for the whole family.
