We are glad to see that the retail offer of this shopping centre has been extended to include the brands of LPP S.A., the RTV EURO AGD retail chain and Martes Sport. Within one week we managed to increase its occupancy rate from around 70% to 85%, which proves that tenants feel confident about this retail scheme. Talks are currently underway for the remaining space, but we encourage all companies, including local businesses, interested in gaining a foothold in Galeria Bursztynowa to contact us.”
