LA MARINA WELCOMES NEW RETAILERS, RESTAURANTS AND NEWLY IMPROVED STORES TO THE REGIONS FAVOURITE SHOPPING CENTRE23/06/2021
Over the past 18 months, La Marina has witnessed major changes. These include the opening of 13 new operators and the refurbishment of 14 units. This shows the confidence this most popular Shopping and Dining destination has for savvy businesses looking to expand and grow on the Costa Blanca and, more specifically the Benidorm & Finestrat locations.
Miniso, one of the most popular operators in the world in the last year, opened its shop in the CC La Marina last December.
A number of operators have taken advantage of the reduced footfall and sales during the pandemic to close and undertake major changes and renovations in anticipation of normality returning. These new and improved stores have greatly enhanced the appearance of the Centre.
International clothing and accessories brands Jack & Jones and Guess renovated their units in the Centre to ensure that visitors can have a completely revamped experience. The Base sports shop has extended and renovated its shop to create a flagship store, with an increased range, to compliment their existing store portfolio. Everyone's favourite gift and decorations store Ale-Hop has also updated its space to offer an even more incredible selection of Summer 2021 essentials. Druni had a complete refurbishment, including a full rebrand and new interior to freshen up the store's look and ensure that all the visitors can purchase all the latest Summer 2021 must-have health & beauty items.
The renovated Guess Store At La Marina Looks Great
