In 2016, Polish sports brand 4F will open its shops in Latvia. Colliers International advised the company in its development and acquisition of attractive locations in Latvian shopping centres.
4F is one of the brands owned by OTCF S.A. – sportswear and sports accessories producer. In Poland, 4F products are sold through the net of over 300 shops, including about 150 mono-brand stores. Currently, the brand is available – thanks to the wholesale – in 24 European countries. In 2016, 4F starts to develop its own retail network, including Latvia.
“Based on the positive experience in cooperation with Colliers International OTCF chose us to support the development of their brand on the Latvian market. In the first place we are considering retail projects in Riga,” said Agnieszka Baczyńska, director in the Retail Agency of Colliers International. “The Latvian market is becoming increasingly interesting for Polish tenants. Some of them have already decided to expand, e.g.: Reserved, Gino Rossi, CCC, Multikino. The opening of the first 4F stores is planned for spring 2016.”
