Five shopping and entertainment centres controlled by Akropolis Group in Latvia and Lithuania had over 44 million visitors in 2023, which is 7% more than in 2022. Bigger visitor footfall contributed to the growth of shopping centres tenants’ turnover, which was almost EUR 1.2 billion last year – 7% more than in 2022 (EUR 1.1 billion).

“2023 was the first year when the shopping centres were no longer subject to any COVID-19 related restrictions, which had a positive effect on the performance: Akropolis shopping and entertainment had more visitors and the tenants saw the growth in their business volumes. In the five shopping centres controlled by Akropolis Group, we welcomed more than 44 million visitors last year and the tenants’ turnover reached almost EUR 1.2 billion. The results were positively influenced by renovation of the shopping centres, opening of new brands’ and revamped shops, the number of which was more than 100 last year, as well as the widening of services and entertainment offer based on the visitors’ preferences,” comments Nerijus Maknevičius, the CEO and the Chairman of the Board of Akropolis Group.

All shopping and entertainment centres controlled by Akropolis Group constantly strive to ensure the widest choice of relevant brands, points of service and entertainment, so in 2023, 101 new or revamped shops were opened: 29 shops in Vilnius Akropolis (12 in 2022), 20 shops in Klaipėda Akropolis (5 in 2022), 12 shops in Šiauliai Akropolis (4 in 2022), 12 shops in Akropole Riga (6 in 2022), 28 shops in Akropole Alfa (18 in 2022).
