Tallinn, Friday 19th October 2018, 09:00: Nautica shopping centre celebrates its first birthday this weekend and to commemorate this important event Zhenja Fokin will be hosting the celebrations at Nautica on Saturday 20th October starting at 12:00. Expect free fashion styling, folk dance acts, music, children’s entertainment from Frozen’s Elsa and Anna and a wheel of fortune where shoppers can try their hand at winning some excellent prizes. To thank all our loyal shoppers, Nautica will also be hosting a birthday bonanza weekend of sales of up to 70% which will run from the 19th October to the 21st.

Nautica shopping centre opened its doors one year ago today after an extensive 11 million euro renovation and extension. The expansion of Nautica to a destination shopping centre with a GLA of 18,500sqm and over 60 shops has significantly contributed to an improved shopping, entertainment and dining choice for those living and working in central Tallinn as well as those visiting Tallinn for the first time. The larger space has enabled Nautica to have the biggest beauty store in Tallinn at Tradehouse as well as the Nordics’ biggest minigolf centre at Park Minigolf. Brands that have not previously had stores in central Tallinn can now be found at Nautica such as Cropp, House, Takko, Calle, Pepco, Sportsdirect.com and many more.

“It has been a fantastic year for Nautica. The improved fashion, dining and leisure mix that Nautica allows us to provide and the loyalty campaigns we have been running this year have attracted many new visitors to Nautica. It also continues to attract first class international retailers such as Pepco which opened its first central Tallinn store at Nautica in June and H&M which opened in March of this year. We are proud of the positive impact that Nautica has had on improving city centre shopping and how it continues to be a key destination in the Tallinn port area.” Ruben Gornischeff, Board Member, Capfield.

Footfall at Nautica has steadily increased since opening reaching a peak of up to 400,000 customers per month. Nautica supports up to 500 jobs and shopper dwell time at Nautica is double what it was at Norde Centrum and steadily, over the year, turnover sales at Nautica have increased month on month. Both shopper conversion rate and customers per square meter are far above the Tallinn average.

“Our customers love coming to Nautica for its convenience. They can stock up on their weekly food shop at the Rimi hypermarket, park for 2 hours free on any of the 250 spaces and use the many services on offer which now includes the recently opened Truman barber shop and Itella parcel service. We can’t wait to celebrate our first birthday with everyone as a thank you to all those who have visited us over the past year.” Kadri-Ann Tivas, Centre Manager, Capfield
