Scallier is developing a network of Funshop Park retail parks in Romania. It is expected that the company will complete 6 facilities with a total leasable area of 40,000m² by 2022. Work is currently underway to prepare further investments.
“Funshop Park is a compact facility tailored to the needs of local communities. Hence, a characteristic feature of these projects will be a diversified gastronomical service offer, it’s an expectation of Romanian customers. This, among other things, distinguishes Polish parks from those implemented in Romania,” said Wojciech Jurga, Managing Partner at Scallier responsible for the company’s development on the Romanian market. “We decided to implement projects in Romania due to how similar this market is to the Polish market, as well as the special moment in time which this country is currently located within. Romania is in a place where Poland was about 10 years ago. The wealth of residents is growing, and the offer of modern retail space is very limited. In many cities with tens of thousands of people, there are no such spaces at all. The situation related to this pandemic, which changes the market conditions, is also important. E-commerce and complementary projects are dynamically developing, meeting the expectations of consumers and making it possible to shop quickly and conveniently.”
