On Thursday this week (20.11.2014) our newest STOP.SHOP. celebrated its opening in the Polish town of Zary. It is already the third retail development we've completed in Poland this year: with the STOP.SHOP. opened in Ketrzyn in September and the first VIVO! shopping centre in Piła (its opening took place in October), we have a total of nearly 33,000 sqm of newly opened retail space in Poland in 2014, including Zary.But back to Zary: this STOP.SHOP. market has approx. 3,550 sqm of lettable space and covers a catchment area of more than 103,000 residents. Awaiting visitors is a mix of international and national brands such as Natura, KiK, CCC, Deichmann, Pepco, Martes Sport and EMPiK.
With us, action-packed opening celebrations are now tradition – and this time a vivid and varied entertainment programme was also offered. In addition to the official ribbon-cutting ceremony, there were prize draws and attractive gifts. The absolute highlight, however, was the concert by Margaret, a singer known in Poland as well as abroad (for those who aren't familiar with her: she was also on the Austrian charts with her biggest hit "Thank You Very Much").
