STOP SHOP in Sremska Mitrovica will have a total of 300 parking spaces, and the opening of the retail park is planned for August 2019.
“The construction of the 10th STOP SHOP retail park in Sremska Mitrovica confirms our promise that we gave in 2015 when we entered the Serbian market – the determination to expand our multinational chain of ritual parks. The new STOP SHOP will offer a unique shopping experience to the citizens of Sremska Mitrovica and its surroundings, “said Josko Piteša, IMMOFINANZ operations manager for Serbia. “The IMMOFINANZ STOP SHOP portfolio includes 80 retail parks in nine countries and we are working on further expansion in order to strengthen our position as the leading retailer of European parks in Europe,” he added.
Mayor of Sremska Mitrovica Vladimir Sanader said that the construction of STOP SHOP in Sremska Mitrovica is one of the indicators that the city is developing at a high speed and that trade objects of this significance are a sign that the business environment in the city is extremely good.
“We are very grateful to the Austrian investor who came to our city to build a ritual center that was missing from Sremska Mitrovica in the previous period. We hope that STOP SHOP will successfully operate and develop in Sremska Mitrovica. Local self-government is ready to help as well, so far, to remind, one of the aspects of our involvement is the construction of an access road service, as well as the installation of a traffic light and a left turn for the building. We want them successful works at the end of the building and we are eagerly waiting for the opening, “said Vladimir Sanadar, Mayor of Sremska Mitrovica.
