But Jean-Michel Silberstein, president of the National Centre of Shopping Malls (CNCC) vowed not to fall victim to fear.
“These new threats do not change much in terms of what we have experienced in recent weeks,” Silberstein said.
“We do not want to create a climate of anxiety in the shopping centres, because the spirit of January 11th (the day of the "Je suis Charlie" mass public rallies throughout France) is that of a country that resists.”
The costs of security have increased by 30 percent in the aftermath of the terror attacks.
