The expansion of retail park projects in South East Europe continues with the opening of Extra Retail Park - the first development of its kind in Montenegro, located in Podgorica.
More than 300 guests, including government officials, investor and retail tenants’ representatives, attended the official Extra Retail Park opening on the 30th of August.
Dragica Sekulić, Montenegrin Economy Minister, Dragan Stanojlović, the owner of Sport Vision and Toljan Papajorgji, Chief Executive Officer at JUMBO, cut the ribbon to mark the opening of the new retail park.
“The development of the retail center resulted in the creation of 150 jobs, as well as a new and unique shopping destination,” stated Petar Veličković, CEO of Sport Vision, the project’s investor, in his speech to the attendees.
As part of the celebration, Sport Vision donated 10,000 EUR to the Institute for Children’s Diseases in Podgorica.
