Bristol Socio-economic Footprint

Our True Value of Retail Report reveals that our retail destinations across Europe are responsible for creating 40,000 jobs, the majority of which are taken by people local to the communities we serve. Altogether, this generates some £800 million in employee wages, a large proportion of which will be redistributed into the local economy.
