Arena Centar in Zagreb ended 2019 with record-breaking business results and attracted 10 million annual visitors.
The shopping center was expanded and refurbished in 2018. It also enhanced its offer with the opening of Arena Park last year. As a result, Arena Centar now houses all the relevant fashion, beauty, sports, and tech brands in one place.
The number of stores in the mall grows every year, with Peek & Cloppenburg, Calvin Klein Jeans, Hugo Boss, Nespresso, The Body Shop, Gap, Lacoste, Ted Baker, JYSK, CCC and KIK among its latest additions.
Despite the challenges brought about by the reconstruction of Remetinec roundabout, Arena Centar reached 10 million visits in the last year, confirming its position as the leading shopping and entertainment destination for the whole family in Croatia.
Besides footfall, the mall set another record in retail stores’ turnover. Compared to 2018, consumer spending per capita was up by 20 percent, while the overall spending increase was 11 percent.
Nataša Milašinčić, Arena Centar’s Director stated:
Last year’s double-digit growth in turnover proves that Arena Centar is still the top choice for customers in Zagreb and the wider catchment zone. We were able to achieve increased footfall and spending figures due to community support, which included not only business but various socially responsible goals. We donated 3 million HRK across multiple CSR and sustainability projects. This is in line with the business path we’ve laid for the future – to coexist with the local community in a way that goes beyond legal requirements to bring mutual benefits and satisfaction.
