A new shopping centre at the Senica Retail Park was opened a few days ago by the development group VIWO. It sits alongside pre-existing retailers such as Kaufland, Family Centre, hobbi and Tanker.
“We have been building a shopping zone in Senica – Párovce for ten years now and we are happy to add shops which will provide a wider range of products for customers from the town and the surrounding areas,” said Lajos Kovács, an executive director of the VIWO company.
The widening of the Retail zone now means that there are 1,700 square metres of shops, occupied by brands such as CCC, Okay, Orion, Super Zoo, with TEDi set to join them in the Spring.
“The current economic situation is helping the establishment of smaller shopping zones in middle to large towns,” thinks Martin Hudák from Cushman & Wakefield who are the company managing the rental of the retail spaces.
“Established shopping zones are using their potential to grow. This is what has happened at the shopping zone in Senica. We are glad to welcome new retailers,” added Hudák.
