Both facilities are already mostly leased, and advanced negotiations are underway for the remaining vacant space. The retail park in Vaslui will open to customers in May this year, and the opening of the facility in Mosnita is planned for the fall.
In Vaslui, Sinsay, New Yorker, Hervis, TEDi, Pepco, KiK, Sportisimo, ZOO Center and Pizzeria Rimmini will open their stores, and in Mosnita customers will be able to take advantage of the offer of DM Drogerie, TEDi, Fressnapf, Sportisimo, Numero Uno, Animax, Xpress or Clever Fit fitness club. “We expected a lot of interest from tenants in these locations, as we had previously received clear signals from them about looking for space with specific parameters, but the interest exceeded our expectations. This proves the high demand from the chains, which is created by the needs of Romanian consumers,” says Ana Tudor, responsible for leasing space in Romanian retail parks at Scallier. “Following the high demand for quality retail space, we are preparing further projects in Romania, which we will announce soon,” adds Wojciech Jurga, Managing Partner at Scallier, responsible for the company’s development in Romania.
“Consumer demand for quality, convenient shopping is growing. Customers also from smaller cities expect well-thought-out commercial locations that will satisfy most of their needs for the necessary products or services. We implement our facilities as elements of larger commercial destinations that also include the offer of stores such as Lidl or Kaufland. The creation of one such shopping center in a smaller town usually fully meets the needs of local communities,” emphasizes Adrian Aleman, Development Director at Scallier. “We also listen carefully to the voices of residents. In Mosnita we have prepared a special offer for local entrepreneurs – it is a park located on the outskirts of a large urban center – Timisoara and the needs and expectations of local residents were different from the expectations of people who live in smaller towns. This shows how flexible formats retail parks are and how relatively easy it is to adjust their offer to changing market conditions and expectations,” concludes Adrian Aleman.
