Barcelona retail situation


My name is Laszlo, I currently reside in Budapest. I really like Barcelona and have been thinking about setting up a business over there, but the recent economic problems have made me put that idea on the shelf.

I haven't been to the city since Protected content , so I dont know what is the situation on the ground anymore, but back then it was going really well.

My question is: How bad is it really? I am thinking of setting up a sneaker shop, just so you get the idea of what I want ot be involved in.

I would like to hear advice from people living there. Sometimes its better to start in a downturn as your costs can be significantly lower - I dont know if this is the case over there. Are people spending, how are mid to luxury level retailers doing? I am interested to talk to people about this topic- Let me know!
