A Martes Sport store has opened today at the Plejada shopping centre in Sosnowiec. Martes Sport, a manufacturer and distributor of sports clothing, footwear and accessories, has leased 358 sq m of retail space. Cushman & Wakefield, a leading global real estate services firm, represented the landlord in this transaction.
Martes Sport is a Polish company with its headquarters in Bielsko-Biała. It supplies products of brands such as Arena, Colmar, Elbrus, Hi-Tec, Iguana, Magnum, Martes and Nike. Martes Sport, whose first store was opened in Czeladź in August 2005, now has nearly 50 stores totalling 26,035 sq m across Poland.
The Plejada shopping centre is located at 8b Staszica Street in Sosnowiec and totals more than 20,000 sq m of leasable space, comprising over 100 stores, restaurants and a Carrefour hypermarket. It opened its doors in November 2001. In autumn 2012 Plejada underwent modernisation, recommercialisation, including the opening of four new stores of the Inditex brands, and renovation of its common areas. The refurbishment was coordinated by the Project Management Department of Cushman & Wakefield. The Plejada shopping centre, owned by St Martins Property, has been managed by the Property & Asset Management Department of Cushman & Wakefield since October 2010.
Tomasz Gizicki, Plejada’s director from the Property & Asset Management Department of Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Martes Sport has replaced our former tenant offering sports products. We are pleased to be able to maintain continuity at Plejada and to offer a full range of products to all sports and fitness fans. We invite everyone to visit the Martes Sport store.”
