Michael Gingrich, Regional Asset Manager for Argo, says: "The expansion of Shopping City Sibiu will be a great addition to the current retail park, and it gives customers their entire shopping needs in one destination. We believe that the entire centre will benefit from the expansion, as several great retailers are added to the strong existing mix of national and international tenants. This will definitely consolidate the retail options in the city of Sibiu for some time."
