In twenty years the retail trade has undergone a real revolution in Portugal.  Medium and large stores have appeared and considerably changed the Portuguese consumer’s habits.  Meanwhile, traditonal commerce (non-food) has also been revolutionised with the multiplying growth of franchised shops.  For example, we now find in Lisbon some of the big names of designer clothing.  Shopping centres were practically non-existent before Portugal joined the EEC, and have also become  popular in Portugal.  We are therefore fast approaching the standards of the major European cities, even though there is still a significant gap whether it be in terms of choice of products, or of quality and customer / after-sales services, etc.
There are still good opportunities available for those wishing to invest in franchising in Lisbon.

  
Over the last 3 years, as a tourist city, Lisbon:
has improved
has not progressed
has dropped in quality
