Galeria Libero, which is developed by Echo Investment in the south of Katowice, will offer an opportunity to do shopping in a Piotr i Paweł supermarket. The popular Polish grocery chain has leased an area of over 1,400 sqm in Libero.
“We are opening another supermarket of the Piotr i Paweł chain in Katowice. We know this market and customers know our brand, which they appreciate for its broad range of products and high quality. We are a Polish chain which successfully combines tradition with modernity and has been effectively competing against foreign concepts. We offer the average of 15,000 products at competitive prices to our customers, from articles of necessity and a broad range of products of the ‘Piotr i Paweł’ brand to fresh and local products which could be bought at a local market or niche delicacies imported from various parts of the world. We chose Libero due to its excellent location right next to the main traffic route in the city, thanks to which residents of nearby towns located south of Katowice will be able to also use our shop. The quality architecture of the mall and convenient transport solutions are also important for us,” says Ewa Aleszczyk-Kalinowska, spokesperson of the Piotr i Paweł chain.
“In times when educated consumers consciously choose the quality grocery offer and discount shops stopped being as popular as they used to be, it was very important for us to rent the area in Libero to a very good grocery operator. Piotr i Paweł is definitely an excellent choice. It is a brand which guarantees a broad range of products as well as top quality of the products and service. It is well-tried and popular in Katowice,” says Tomasz Domoń, regional leasing director at Echo Investment.
The construction of Galeria Libero is on schedule. Advanced commercialization process is conducted regardless of the progressing construction work. Over 70 pct of Libero’s retail area has been leased. Libero is characterized by its excellent location at the junction of Kościuszki Street and Kolejowa Street, which are used by over 15,000 vehicles per hour at peak times. The redevelopment of the road layout near Libero started in July this year. Echo Investment signed a contract with Przedsiębiorstwo Budownictwa Drogowo-Inżynieryjnego S.A. concerning the construction of a new crossroads. The completion of the redevelopment is planned for March 2018. Libero is planned to be opened in spring 2018.
