What are the ‘Guns’?

SCN‘s iconic ‘Guns’ reports have become more than just essential reading, but major industry assets that are often quoted by mainstream media as soon as they are published by Shopping Centre News; however, only premium subscribers may read the full reports.

Big Guns are major regional shopping centres with a Gross Lettable Area (GLA) of more than 50,000m2. The annual Big Guns report is published in March. The reporting period is 1 January to 31 December. Survey submissions are due late February.

CBD Guns are city retail centres with a GLA less than 50,000m2. The annual CBD Guns report is published at the end of May. The reporting period is 1 April to 31 March. Survey submissions are due late April.

Mini Guns are shopping centres with a GLA more than 6,000m2 up to 20,000m2. The annual Mini Guns report is published at the end of September. The reporting period is 1 August to 31 July. Survey submissions are due late August.

Little Guns are shopping centres with a GLA more than 20,000m2 up to 50,000m2. The annual Little Guns report is published at the end of November. The reporting period is 1 October to 30 September. Survey submissions are due late September.

These Guns reports rank shopping centres by:
GLA: The trading area of all tenants located at the centre.
MAT: Moving Annual Turnover ($ million).
MAT/m2: Total retail sales of the centre divided by the retail area from which the retail sales were derived.
Specialty MAT/m2: Total retail sales for trade reporting tenants with a GLA below 400m2, divided by the retail area from which the retail sales were derived. Note – Mini Gun centres are not ranked by Specialty MAT/m2.
