This autumn the Czech retail market will see the arrival of successful Slovakian shopping centre chain Aupark, a much needed addition to the country’s retail market. Aupark is already 80 percent leased, with committed tenants from respected international brands, some opening in the city for the first time. Occupiers will include ECCO, Marc O´Polo, Le Premier, Muziker, Costa Coffee, Vegg GO.
Seven months before Aupark’s opening, we already have more than three quarters of the retail units leased and we are in discussions with additional brands. This is no doubt the result of HB Reavis’ strong reputation in the Czech Republic, as well as our great international retail relationships. We have already constructed four Auparks in Slovakia, beginning with the highly successful shopping centre in Bratislava. We are proud that several of the renowned brands we are cooperating with in Slovakia will also be opening their branches in Hradec Králové
stated Milan Mašša, the Leasing Manager of the HB Reavis project.
With such high saturation of retail space in the majority of the Czech cities, it is no longer easy to find successful locations for new shopping centers. Hradec Králové provesto be a great exception and area primed for growth.
