Tavira shopping centre

DEVELOPERS MARTIFER have said that more than 70 per cent of the units available at the Grand Plaza shopping centre in Tavira have already been sold.

The 26,750 square metre development will have 110 shop units suitable for catering, supermarkets, clothing and other types of outlets.

Retailers who have already confirmed their presence at the shopping centre include C&A, Sportzone and electrical retailer Worten.

Martifer believe that this is a clear indication that the Grand Plaza “demonstrates a demand for the presence of a shopping centre in the area”.

The shopping centre, which had been at the centre of controversy (see The Resident edition March 7) because of fears it would see small shop owners in the area go out of business, is set to open in May 2009.
