Milan, 15 May 2023 – Merlata Bloom Milano will host the first Peek & Cloppenburg store in Italy. Nhood Services Italy, an international real estate company specialising in commercial real estate and urban regeneration, signed an important exclusive agreement with the Fashion Retailer which will allow the company to enter the Italian market for the first time.
With over 160stores ranging in size from 1.900 and 17.000 square metres in 16 European countries, Peek & Cloppenburg is one of the largest multibrand-fashion retailer in Europe. From 2024, Italian customers will also be able to enjoy Peek & Cloppenburg’s diverse range of international top brands and exclusive own brands for the first time. For leisure and business through to cocktail events, customers will find a new favourite article of clothing to emphasise their own individual look. The upcoming Merlata Bloom Milano store will consist of a 5.000+ square metres area dedicated to premium brands.
Peek & Cloppenburg’s deal represents a further step within the commercialisation of Merlata Bloom’s retail spaces, which has reached 90 per cent before the mall’s opening, scheduled for the second half of 2023.
The more than 210 already announced openings in Merlata Bloom Milano give substance to the extensive retail project which, with its 3 experiential floors, goes beyond the traditional concept of a retail space: in fact, it aims to be a 70.000 square metres-hub, 20.000 of which are dedicated to leisure, entertainment and culture, including food&beverage and sport ones.
Anand Remtolla, Nhood Services Italy S.p.A’s CCO – Chief Commercial Officer, said: ‘Thanks to the agreement with Peek & Cloppenburg, we go on with our client-oriented marketing strategy, aimed at meeting every visitors’ needs and requirements, and proposing brands for the first time in Italy, alongside high street brands and territorial excellences. We are delighted that such a leading European group has chosen us for the opening of its first store in Italy: this is a further confirmation of Merlata Bloom’s attractiveness and of what we mean by innovating in the retail industry – i.e. to improve people’s lives and make places where they live healthier, more functional and happier, with a triple positive impact: on people, on the planet, on profit.’
Neofit Vasilev, Director Sales Management Austria and Eastern Europe, said: “We are happy to open our first store in Italy in Merlata Bloom Milano. We are looking forward to offering our Italian customers a wide range of products for every occasion and present a unique shopping experience.”
Thanks to the Merlata Bloom Milano project, Nhood adds the last piece in a new generation neighbourhood like the North-West quadrant of Milan. The services’ offering like Retail, Leisure and Sustainability has been conceived for the benefit of the entire area, including the MIND innovation district and the EuroMilano’s Uptown residential village, of which Merlata Bloom Milano represents the physical bridge and the beating heart.
