TK Maxx will open Upper Silesia’s largest store in Galeria Katowicka. The shop will offer the full range of top name designer labels including: womenswear, menswear, kidswear, shoes, accessories and home décor items – all up to 60% off regular prices in Poland and worldwide.
TK Maxx, a growing European division of TJX Companies, Inc (USA), has chosen the region capital’s Galeria Katowicka to open its 27th Polish store. The unit will be located at level -1. An area of 2 000 sq. meters makes it one of the mall’s largest stores.
„We are pleased that Galeria Katowicka will host the first TK Maxx store in the Upper Silesian capital. Customer research has shown that a lot of people have been waiting for this brand” – says Marta Wybrańska, International Leasing Director at Neinver.
TK Maxx is a designer brands-for-less retailer implementing a unique „off-price” concept. Unlike other stores, TK Maxx updates its stock several times a week. Opportunistic buying and a no frills operation means TK Maxx can pass huge savings onto the customer.
Mark Gamble, Meyer Bergman’s Head of Asset Management, said: „TK Maxx’s decision to open shows how Galeria Katowicka has become the go-to location in Upper Silesia for leading European retailers. The center is performing successfully one year after it opened, with sales and footfall increasing, which in turn is attracting interest from more retailers.”
TK Maxx at Galeria Katowicka will open on 26th February, joining 250 tenants, including brands which are not available anywhere else in the region, such as Estee Lauder, M.A.C., Peek & Cloppenburg along with global brands; Zara, Pull & Bear, Bershka, Nike, Mango and Massimo Dutti. The center generates a footfall of approximately 1 million visits a month.
Marek Noetzel, Partner and Head of Retail Department in Cushman & Wakefield, said: „TK Maxx’s decision to open its store in Galeria Katowicka shows growing importance of the scheme on the retail map of the Upper Silesia region. This transaction will further widen the offer of Galeria Katowicka. I am convinced that the tenant-landlord cooperation will be running smoothly.”
The property is owned by Meyer Bergman, in a partnership with Neinver and Polish State Railways (PKP). Cushman & Wakefield is the sole agent responsible for leasing retail space in Galeria Katowicka.
