Westgate Shopping City, the largest shopping center in Croatia managed by F.O. / Group, is celebrating ten new store openings this September.
The new stores are in line with Westgate’s strategy to update its tenant mix and position itself as a leading shopping center for families. As part of its strategy, the mall has introduced new specialty zones dedicated to interior design, furniture, and children, named Westgate Home and Westgate Kids.
Westgate Shopping City will become the largest shopping center in the European Union after Brexit. In April 2018, the mall changed its ownership structure and is now owned solely by the Austrian company Focus Invest. The management of the shopping center has been appointed to F.O. / Group, which has implemented various changes to the center, including new business zones.

The Westgate Home zone was enriched with several new stores: Aledo furniture, Si studio furniture, Italian ceramics retailer Happy House, Intermod furniture, mediSpa and J&I Dream, and Bima.
Furthermore, the existing Mobel Land store was expanded to 8,000 sqm of space.
The Westgate Kids zone was complemented with a new Family Park indoor playground, as well as new stores: Dječji svijet, Babycenter, BabyLand, and Idexe. In addition, the zone also houses a foreign language school Hellen Doron.
