Despite the advent of e-tailing and other changes in the retailing sector, the 'one-stop' shopping
centre remains a popular retailing format. ServQual and ServPerf measure the performance of individual service firms on five key dimensions, namely reliability, responsiveness, assurance, empathy, and tangibles. However, these dimensions appear to be less appropriate for measuring the performance of a sub-regional shopping centre that comprises a mix of anchors, specialty stores and service outlets. An exploratory study of 251 households revealed that shoppers
evaluate the performance of sub-regional centres on five alternative dimensions, namely accessibility, physical surroundings, safety, retail mix, and personal interaction.
