- This year Galaxy turned 13 years old. Our object is one of the most popular in the city. Szczecin dwellers appreciate our offer which translates into so called footfall indicator and our tenants’ revenue. However, customers’ expectations regarding shopping centers continue to rise. They are looking not only for a shopping place with a wide variety of goods, but also for a place where they could spend their free time, entertain and relax. This is why we decided to expand. We want to meet these needs and to strengthen our position as the commercial leader both among the citizens and potential tenants. I’m glad to see well-known, popular brands joining us. People of Szczecin are waiting for them – says Michał Świerczyński, Board Member from Echo Polska Properties, an owner of the center.
Galaxy shopping center was opened on Oct. 1st, 2003. Visitors of the four-story building can enjoy an array of stores, boutiques, service points as well as a rich gastronomy offer. A modern, multi-screen movie theater, a bowling alley with 14 lanes, pool and simulation games arcade “Game Town” as well as playgrounds add to the attractiveness of the place. Perfectly located Galaxy has numerous transportation links with all parts of Szczecin and is easy to reach.
