December 6, 2013. As of December 1, 2013, there are 31 shopping malls in Yekaterinburg comprising 42% of all the shopping areas in the city, Yekaterinburg Council's press officer says.

On average, a shopping mall in Yekaterinburg is approximately 38,000 sq m big. Greenwich and Mega are the biggest malls of 100,000 sq m each. Out of the 31 shopping malls operating in Yekaterinburg 10 are focused on trade and entertainment and 8 are focused on furniture and interior design. There are 3 parking spaces per every 100 sq m of shopping area. However, the regulations state that the figure should be 10 parking spaces per every 100 sq m.
