Silesia Outlet in Poland welcomes 100,000 visitors during its first week

NEINVER has welcomed 100,000 visitors to Silesia Outlet in Gliwice, Poland, during the first week since the opening of the centre on 27 March. The most popular day was Sunday with nearly 19,000 visitors.

“We have created a modern and attractive shopping destination in a well-known and already established location. The excellent results of the first week show that Silesia Outlet’s value proposition was needed in Silesia’s retail scenario,” says Mirosław Januszko, Managing Director at 6B47, investor of the facility.

Silesia Outlet opened with 12,000 sq m of commercial space and 60 shops featuring top domestic and international brands including Bugatti, Bytom, Guess, Diverse, Home&Cook, New Balance, Only, Pepe Jeans, Pierre Cardin, Puma, Triumph and Reebok, among others. Nearly 95% of the centre is already leased, with brands such as Adidas and Travel and food operators Daily Sandwich Café and Daily Pizza joining in the coming months.

“Our goal is to complement the centre’s commercial mix with some of our brand partners that are very popular at the FACTORY centers in other regions of Poland,” says Agnieszka Baczyńska, International Leasing Director NEINVER. “We are in ongoing conversations with both top international and Polish retailers interested in opening at Silesia Outlet,” adds Agnieszka Baczyńska. 

Located in the city of Gliwice in the Silesia region, the centre features a large catchment area of over 6.5 million residents. The scheme enjoys an excellent location in the immediate vicinity of the A4 motorway, which connects Cracow, the Silesian Agglomeration and Wroclaw – the largest economic centres of southern Poland.

The investor of Silesia Outlet is 6B47 Real Estate Investors group, a leading developer in Austria and Germany, while NEINVER is in charge of management, marketing and leasing since the opening.
