“The presence of GUESS in Galeria Młociny is one of the elements of our extensive brand development strategy in Poland. Because it will be a place associated with elegance, comfort and a modern style of living, I am convinced that our brand will be perfectly in line with the profile of Galeria Młociny and it will become an important spot on the fashion map of this multifunctional centre of Bielany,” says Waldemar Madajczyk, Regional Director CEE & Russia at Guess Poland.
“While designing Galeria Młociny we have been putting a lot of emphasis on arranging an interesting and unconventional fashion offer. We invite strong, attractive and distinctive brands which are expected by residents of Bielany, our potential visitors. Guess is certainly one of such brands. Only five years ago they opened their first few shops in Poland. Their fashion proposals have been very welcome and the brand has a lot of loyal customers. We wholeheartedly invite them to Galeria Młociny,” says Tomasz Domoń, Regional Leasing Director in Echo Investment’s Shopping Centre Department.
The GUESS brand, which was founded in 1981, started its operations as a company specializing in denim. Intensive development of the company over the years enabled it to become an international clothing brand which is recognizable all over the world. Nowadays Guess?, Inc. designs as well as sells and distributes collections of clothes, bags, footwear and accessories for women, men and children.
Galeria Młociny is carried out by a joint venture of EPP and Echo Investment on Zgrupowania AK Street in Warsaw’s Bielany district. The place will gather 220 shops and service outlets, comfortable offices, a medical centre, playgrounds for children, a fitness club, restaurants and cafes, a trampoline park as well as the first multi-screen cinema in the district in a friendly and green area. EPP is the owner of 70% of the project while the remaining part is held by Echo Investment, which is responsible for the construction and commercialization of the project.
The mall is being developed right next to the Młociny hub, which has one of the best transport links in Warsaw and provides access to the underground, numerous tram lines and bus routes, both suburban and all-Poland one, a bicycle station and a P&R car park. It is the most important transfer hub in the north part of the city, it services Warsaw satellite towns and it is used by over 24 mln passengers every year.
