Well-being and safety come first
“The overall atmosphere and experience of our visitors in ALEJA are of paramount importance to us. That is why we try to provide a relaxed visit to the shopping center, despite the currently restricting COVID-19 shopping conditions. We are, along with shopkeepers and service providers, looking forward to our first visitors. We will ensure their wellbeing and security, which is why we have introduced exceptionally high hygiene standards. These include regular disinfection of handrails, escalators, and other hardware, as well as buttons in lifts and on ATMs. At each entrance into the shopping center and at the entrance to each store or cafe, visitors are provided with hand sanitizers. Access to the shopping center will only be possible with a facemask, to make shopping experience comfortable as well as safe,” emphasized the center manager of ALEJA and country manager of SES Slovenia Toni Pugelj, who cut the ribbon at today’s opening of the first stores in the new shopping center ALEJA.
