AXI IMMO, an expert in the commercial real estate, has acquired new tenants for Centrum Kowale in the Tricity. The network of nationwide discount stores PEPCO will occupy 300 sqm. In addition, the centre’s portfolio of services is to be expanded by a Play customer service point and the Main Optic salon.

Centrum Kowale is a Convenience Shopping Centre investment that allows local residents to do fast and urgent shopping. Centrum Kowale is being built among large housing estates in the Tricity where at present there are no alternatives to do shopping in one place. The retail area will cover around 5400 sqm. The site will have 162 parking spaces.

PEPCO at Centrum Kowale

PEPCO is a nationwide chain of discount stores, offering apparel and household products. The chain has a range of around two thousand products – clothing for women, men, children and babies, underwear, fashion accessories, stationery, games and toys, decorative home furnishings, luggage, bags, purses and backpacks.

“The choice of Centrum Kowale is part of the company’s consistently implemented development strategy. The model for building the chain that we have adopted assumes from 70 to 80 new stores per year located in shopping centres throughout the country. The potential of the location and the presence of food retailers were decisive factors in the choice of Centrum Kowale for our next outlet,” said Marcin Stańko, Director of Operations PEPCO.
