The European retail chain PEPCO from Poland which offers shoppers clothes for the whole family as well as wide range of household products will soon begin operations in Croatia.
PEPCO began operations in Poland in 2004, and has since recorded great interest from customers with the business expanding into Central and Eastern Europe. Apart from Poland, PEPCO currently operates in several Central European countries such as the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania. The retail chain employs more than 9,000 people with more than 700 stores in Poland and more than 1,000 stores all over Europe.
"We are very pleased to be in Croatia next year with buyers getting a chance to visit our stores. The Croatian market opens up great opportunities for our brand and we hope that we will pave the way for other countries in the region’", said Marcin Stanko, the director of the Operations for Central and Eastern Europe.
PEPCO is planning to open the first store in Zagreb in early April 2017, with the first workers being employed early next year. During the first three years of its operations in Croatia, the brand plans to open about 50 stores throughout the country mainly in cities with over 10,000 residents thus creating around 400 new jobs. We can therefore expect a PEPCO store to be opened in Dubrovnik in the near future.
The popular European retail chain has already won numerous awards in the retail sector - the Forbes Diamond award and the Good Brand and Quality of Service Award.
