Scallier’s Focșani retail park opens on November 11

The center is to comprise 5,000 sq m GLA, of which 100% has already been leased, and is Scallier’s second retail park to open in Romania after Roșiorii de Vede (6 200 sqm GLA) opened in September.

The park is located near an existing large-format grocery shop and features stores by well-known international chains but also local entrepreneurs. The tenants’ list includes such names as Sinsay, Pepco, KiK, Kids Outlet, Animax, Xpress and Hervis as well as the Dabo Doner and Bun de Tot restaurants. 

The retail parks developed by Scallier in small and medium-sized Romanian towns fill a market gap: smaller towns often lack modern retail space. We tend to locate our sites near existing large-format grocery shops. In tandem, they create an attractive destination: for daily grocery shopping, well-known clothing and electronics brands, food court offer, or even a playground for children.” – says Wojciech Jurga, Managing Partner at Scallier responsible for the company’s development on the Romanian market. 

“It is worth mentioning that more than 30% of modern retail space is in Bucharest.” – notices Adrian Aleman, Development Director in Scallier. “Residents of smaller towns must often travel for several hours in pursuit of well-known fashion brands. This means not only a waste of time and money but also disorganization of the day. The problem was noticed by retail chains, which turn to us when looking for space in non-central Romanian locations.”

Construction of other retail parks has already been commenced. They will be delivered to the market in 2022.
