The pandemic time limited the number of stores prepared for our clients. Despite this, we have managed to complete some projects. One of them was lifting of House brand stores in the city of Tiumen in Russia and in Czech Brno.
Tiumen is historically the first Russian city in Siberia, built in 1586. Currently, it has nearly 800 thousand. residents being an important industrial center. The House store facelifted by our company can be found in the Kristall shopping center – a spacious and modern facility where many popular clothing brands run their stores. Among them are also other brands from the portfolio of the LPP group – Reserved, Cropp and Mohito and our other clients such as Levi’s and Wragler LEE, as well as popular brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Massimo Dutti, and belonging to the Inditex group: Zara, Pull & Bear and Stradivarius.
The House store is located on the second floor of the shopping center and has been facelifted by our company to adapt it to the current brand concept. The scope of work of Ergo Store included retail furniture manufacturing and transport – delivery ended in February 2020.
Tiumen is 3.5 thousand kilometers away from our office in Krakow. Once again, therefore, we had the opportunity to work for our regular client in such a remote location in Russia. A similar distance divides Chelyabinsk, where we recently made a Sinsay store. Earlier we were responsible, among others for the preparation of Reserved, Cropp and Sinsay stores in Irkutsk – a city located in eastern Siberia, approx. 6.7 thousand km from Krakow.
The second location of the facelifted House store no longer required transporting furniture over such a large distance. This is Czech Brno and the Vankovka shopping center, located near the very center of the second largest city in the Czech Republic, near the train and bus stations. Vankovka’s offers include many shops of various profiles – from stationery, through grocery to clothing, and their offer is complemented by cafes and restaurants. Among the clothing stores we will also find other brands from the LPP group – Reserved and Mohito, as well as our other clients – the brands Wrangler Lee and CCC, as well as popular manufacturers such as H&M, C&A, and Diesel. The Inditex group with stores Pull & Bear and Stradivarius is also present in the center.
Ergo Store’s scope of work included retail furniture manufacturing and transport. The goal was to refresh the store to adapt it to the current brand concept. We completed the work in mid-March 2020. It is worth mentioning that the previous version of the store was also prepared by our company.
The facelifted House store in Brno was our next production for the LPP group in the Czech Republic. Last summer, we prepared a Sinsay store in Prague, and previously we worked, among others in Liberec (Cropp and House stores prepared in 2017) or Pilzno (Cropp store, production from 2018). In addition to Russia and the Czech Republic, we have also prepared stores of the LPP group in countries such as Russia, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The time of increased caution associated with the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the suspension of several projects we were working on in the first quarter of 2020.
