Denver remains one of the hottest retail markets in the country.
In September, only Portland, Oregon and Seattle grew larger, percentage-wise, in retail sales. Of the top 25 U.S. markets, Portland grew by 9.2 percent, Seattle grew by 6 percent and Denver grew by 4.6 percent, according to data collected by Applied Predictive Technologies (APT).
September was a strong month for retailers,” said Patrick O’Reilly, APT president and COO, in a statement.
The APT Index aggregates in-store sales data at over 100,000 retail chain stores and restaurants across the country to show how year-over-year sales performance changes.
The Denver retail market is expected to get a boost with the recent opening of RH, the rebranded Restoration Hardware, at the Cherry Creek Shopping Center.
