Retail centrality follows the offer and demand of products that are not purchased on a daily basis (apparel, shoes, leisure products…). These products are also segmented according to qualities and prices. As in many Spanish cities, in Madrid El Corte Inglés is the only department store chain of relevance, polarizing clearly the large retail centralities, with differente conditions in each place: popular and touristic in Sol- Callao,  higher level at the Barrio de Salamanca, adaptation to a site marked by the presence of corporate headquarters in Azca, east of Tetuan… the city has many large malls, but they are few inside the M30 beltway and in peripheral situations. The most varied centrality due to its combination with the leisure activities is the Distrito Centro, the Gran Vía, Preciados and Arenal axis; it is followed by that of the Barrio de Salamanca, with a demand more oriented towards richer clients.
