On Thursday 25 October the largest retail park in Belgrade, Capitol Park Rakovica, celebrated its first anniversary with the arrival of five new brands. Several thousand people enjoyed special anniversary discounts from 10.00 am to 11.00 pm, as well as the opening of new stores across more than 2,000 sqm of new space, including Fashion & Friends Outlet, Intersport, Opposite and Koton and the Lunch Express restaurant.
Entertainments started at 4.00 pm with different activities for both young and old such as children’s animators, mascots, clowns, magicians and a 9D virtual reality capsule. From 6.00 pm buyers sampled birthday muffins and enjoyed the concert by band Tropico followed by spectacular fireworks.
Capitol Park opened its doors in Rakovica on 19 October last year, when more than 30 new stores welcomed shoppers from Rakovica and neighbouring municipalities. With the new first anniversary openings, the retail park now extends to 22,000 sqm and more than 700 parking places. Capitol Park Rakovica has nurtured a relaxed family-friendly shopping atmosphere to allow children to play and avoid the crowds. Comfortable shopping and entertainment for children are among the many reasons that Capitol Park has quickly become the new centre of family shopping in the southern suburbs of Belgrade.
“We thank local residents in Rakovica for making us become an entertainment and shopping capital in Belgrade. Today we are celebrating our first anniversary with new stores that will improve consumer choice. We constantly strive to satisfy visitors’ wishes through a diverse and engaging entertainment programme. Capitol Park will see further expansion in 2019,” said Poseidon Group’s Corporate Affairs director James Gunn.
Spring 2019 will see the opening of Capitol Parks in Leskovac and Zajecar with a goal to reach ten retail parks in Serbia over the next two years.
