An economic boost is on its way to Eastern Croatia, more specifically to Vukovar this autumn with the opening of a brand new Pevec sales centre, bringing with it employment opportunities and much more to this otherwise greatly overlooked city.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 25th of March, 2019, Pevec has signed a contract for the construction of a sales centre in Vukovar with a local company from Slavonski Brod, Projektgradnja, which is otherwise a member of the Fortenova Group. The new sales centre will cover an area of almost 5,000 m2. On the first floor, the office space that will be used by the company is set to be done up, Pevec’s logistics and potential other tenants will make use of the revamped space.
“We have signed a contract with the Croatian company Projektgradnja, with which we’re getting another modernly equipped and well-organised sales centre, employees will get high quality working conditions, and our customers a nice location for good and always competitive purchases. The opening of the new Vukovar sales centre is scheduled for October the 1st, 2019, and Vukovar will get fifty new jobs,” Krešimir Bubalo of Pevec’s management board, said.
Samofino Café will also open its doors within the new Vukovar centre. In the second stage of construction, additional business premises are planned and the retail center Pevec is expanded to a retail park with other retailers and brands.
“It’s my great pleasure that Pevec, as the first Croatian trading chain, is investing in the city of Vukovar. We’re building two sales centres in Slavonia, with which we want to try to encourage our people to stay here. By increasing the net minimum wage to 5,000 kuna in our stores, for our merchants, warehouse workers and our drivers, we’re going to be giving our employees jubilee awards, systematic examinations, Christmas bonuses, child allowance and support for newborns, we’d like to show our employees that we care and that through working for Pevec, they can realise their dreams in Croatia,” stated the president of Pevec’s management board, Jurica Lovrinčević.
