Shopping Center Galeria Andrychów in Poland celebrates opening

The joint venture by Acteeum Group and Equilis Europe held its inaugural ceremony of the 24,000 sq m development on November 25th.

Galeria Andrychów is located next to the national road 52 that links with the Czech Republic border-crossing in Cieszyn and Głogoczów, near Kraków. The three new buildings house a total of 31 stores, including clothing, a supermarket, furniture stores, etc.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony at Galeria Andrychów was attended by representatives of the local authorities, investors, the general contractor, the property manager, and retail tenants.

“There is no need to convince anyone how important trade and services are for the growth of the city and its surroundings–it means new jobs and future investment opportunities. Some 30 years ago, Andrychów was a typical industrial town, but it is now becoming a place with tourist attractions, services, and now also retail,” said Tomasz Żak, Mayor of Andrychów, during the opening ceremony.

“I would like to thank all those involved in this project, in particular our partners from the Acteeum Group and tenants. In times when the retail industry must deal with numerous adversities, a day like today takes on a special dimension,” said Monika Woźniak-Zawioła, Head of Retail at Equilis Europe.

“We are proud to deliver the very first retail park in Andrychów, and the second successfully completed together with Equilis. We would like to thank the authorities for their kind support and professional investor services. The potential of Galeria Andrychów is evidenced by the fact that 100% of its space is leased,” added Tomasz Szewczyk, managing partner of Acteeum Group.

“We are pleased to participate in the official opening of Galeria Andrychów. Thank you once again for cooperation to all our partners. Thanks to you, we had built a new shopping destination,” said Joanna Makowiecka-Gatza, President of the Management Board of KARMAR S.A. (the general contractor).

The stores that opened on November 25 include: Smyk, House, Cropp, CCC, Pepco, Deichmann, KIK, jewellery store, Vision Express, Diverse, Sinsay, 4F, Dealz, Interoptyk, Tedi, Media Expert and KS SPORT. More openings are planned in the upcoming weeks, including a Lidl supermarket, HEBE, Rossmann, Greenpoint, Martes Sport, Komfort, Q&Q, 50 Style, TXM, Orange, Jysk, Leroy Merlin, Empik and an exchange office.

Property management company MVGM is responsible for supervising Galeria Andrychów’s day-to-day operations.
