The Polish footwear giant opened its first shopping mall store in Hungary in 2012 at the Pólus Center. Since then, the Polus Center has undergone a rejuvenation, which in large part prompted the renovation of CCC’s retail space. According to CBRE, the number of visitors to Polus Center increased by 6% in 2015, while the turnover of the tenants increased by 15% as compared to the previous year, the press release noted.
“We believe Pólus was a perfect choice for us. Feedback from customers in past years, and a high number of visitors prompted us to expand our presence in the mall. After the refurbishment of Pólus we chose to do our own. ... Moreover, the store is now CCC Hungaryʼs largest shopping mall shoe store,” said Sándor Hódi, managing director of CCC in Hungary.
“We have completed a successful negotiation process, which guarantees the long-term presence of CCC. This newly opened ‘magnet tenant’ is an excellent indicator of Pólus Center’s development, since only the most successful shopping centers have shoe stores of a similar size,” added Szabolcs Koroknai, head of retail - shopping centers at CBRE.
