The 26 CCC shoe stores in Croatia now have a total sales area of 17,500 sq m and are the company’s next step towards market leadership. “We opened the biggest shoe store and, at the same time, the capital’s first CCC shop on the premises of Arena Centar, the latest hotspot of Zagreb’s shopping-center landscape, using CCC’s new shopfitting design. The new store is based on the shop design of a premium concept-store, Europe’s state-of-the-art shopfitting concept,” says CCC’s General Manager Gerald Zimmermann about the new opening. He manages CCC’s Slovenian and Croatian subsidiaries from Graz, Austria. He says, “This is our latest step towards market leadership.”
