The German retailer DEPOT, part of the Gries Deco Holding GmbH store network, has successfully opened a new shop with a sales area of approx. 538 m² in the Westerwald Arkaden shopping centre in Höhr-Grenzhausen, managed by GFORM.

The green building and open-sky shopping centre with a total lettable area of 13,793 square metres celebrated its opening in April 2023 and is a flagship property of the Greenman OPEN portfolio of German food retail properties. With the anchor tenants ALDI and Lidl, as well as well-known retail tenants such as dm, Deichmann, Woolworth, Tedi, Ernstings Family and service providers such as a health centre, a pharmacy, a bank and a hairdresser, the centre represents a central point of community for the region.

Markus Kleinert, Director of Sales at Gries Deco Company, is delighted with the location: “The new Westerwald Arkaden open-sky shopping centre is a highly attractive location with excellent transport links. The centre is easily accessible via the A48 motorway and has plenty of parking spaces, but is also easy and convenient to reach by public transport. All in all, a great overall concept into which the new DEPOT shop fits perfectly.”

He adds: “Both locals and tourists of this beautiful region can look forward to a store with our typical feel-good atmosphere, which is modern, open and has a very high-quality design. We offer a wide range of lifestyle and decorative products. For the opening we have prepared a small gift for our new customers: a 20 percent discount on a favourite item. And I can reveal this much already: There will be some other surprises too. We are looking forward to Höhr-Grenzhausen!”

Jennifer Mühlen, Head of Real Estate Management at GFORM, adds: “The centre Westerwald Arkaden offers its visitors a varied range of local amenities and services, and we are delighted to have DEPOT as a tenant at this special location and warmly welcome the entire team. We rely on strong tenant relationships and look forward to a good and long-term cooperation.”
