CBRE, the world leader in commercial real estate services, negotiated the lease for commercial space for the third largest branch of Alza.cz in the Czech Republic. The new premises have a total area of 1,173 m2 of business units and another 1,000 m2 of utility areas located in Shopping Centre Futurum Ostrava. Thanks to the new main branch in Ostrava, the company has strengthened its operations in the Moravian-Silesian Region. The branch opened for business on 27th April, 2017. Shopping Centre Futurum Ostrava, the new owner of which is Star Capital Investments, has significantly expanded its offer of products and brands with this leasing agreement.
Veronika Tebichová, Head of Shopping Centre Leasing at CBRE, said:
“We’re very pleased to have contributed to further strengthening and revitalizing Futurum Ostrava with a new key tenant. A strong new strong neighbour has joined last year’s new tenants, such as Takko and Decathlon.”
The new Alza.cz main branch in Ostrava is unique in that the storeroom makes up to 80% of the area leased, which has a capacity of almost 15,000 items. This improves the immediate availability of goods, allowing customers to take more than three-quarters of on-site orders straight home. The new regional branch will replace the existing branches in Ostrava. Only the shop in Poruba in Ostrava will be replaced by the popular AlzaBox. The length of the opening hours is above standard once again, with Alza.cz allowing buyers to shop one hour than the other stores in the shopping centre.
Jan Moudřík, Director of Expansion, Facility a Showroom Management at Alza.cz noted:
“We’re persuaded that being able to take home goods immediately is the most important factor for customers. We’re also targeting support in the Moravian-Silesian Region to the utmost, where we had certain reservations.”
