City Overview

Riga is the largest city of Latvia with a population of almost 650,000 people (and more than 1,000,000 in Metropoliten area) and home to more than one third of Latvia's population. High street retail in Riga is scattered throughout the city, with biggest concentration in Riga city center. Aspirational and upmarket brands are located along Elizabetes street and Terbatas street as well as in the beginning of Valnu street, in the Old Town. Mid-market brands are located on Dzirnavu street, value fashion and mainstream brands are located on Barona, Kalku, Terbatas, Valnu street and Aspazijas bulvaris in the Old Town. Latest tendencies show that more and more international retailers are interested in opening their stores on Terbatas street and its surrounding quarters. Terbatas street is one of three city council candidates to become attractive shopping/pedestrian quarter for locals and tourists. The shopping centres in Riga city centre are Galleria Riga in the city business district (Terbatas Street Quarters) and Galerija Centrs in the Old Town. These two schemes as well as Stockmann department store in the Central Station Square are places for many aspirational brands for trendy Riga consumers, and are loved by tourists. Outside the city centre the largest shopping centre schemes are Alfa, Domina Shopping on the right bank of the river, Spice / Spice home and Riga Plaza on the left side of the river. The large shopping complexes offer not only wide choice of shopping, but also a number of various eating places and entertainment possibilities: cinema, bowling and children playgrounds.
