DIY chain Bauhaus opens at A1 retail park, Oftringen, Switzerland

Swiss Prime Site Immobilien AG decided to transform the regional shopping centre A1 in Oftringen into an attractive retail park at the end of 2018. The centre, which was previously used by small-scale general goods retailers, was to be converted into a spacious, modern meeting point to appeal to do it yourself (DIY) customers in particular.

After a construction phase of just over 18 months, the well-known DIY chain Bauhaus, which operates stores throughout Europe, was the last and largest anchor tenant to move into its premises on the site. It opened its new 16 000 sq m store in Oftringen on Saturday, September 26, 2020. Along with Bauhaus, the tenant mix includes Aldi Suisse, Media Markt, mobilezone, Gidor Coiffeur and a bistro, offering local residents a wide range of products and services in one location.

Peter Lehmann, CEO of Swiss Prime Site Immobilien, commented: «With the opening of the new Bauhaus branch, we have successfully completed the repositioning of the site and at the same time created a new urban meeting place for the region.»
