Launched in Poland over 20 years ago, Pepco is one of the fastest growing retailers with 3,000 stores in 17 countries. The opening in the new "The Playce" is a special milestone. The day before, Pepco invites partners and the press to a small pre-opening event in the new store in the basement of "The Playce", the former Potsdamer Platz Arkaden, and presents the store concept, the management team and the cooperation with SOS Children's Villages.
"With the location at Potsdamer Platz, we are not only gaining a new group of customers, but also new neighbors and partners for various joint projects," says Patrick Steiger, Operations Manager at Pepco Germany. Together with Manuela Gräber, Head of Expansion Germany, and colleagues from all over Europe, he will introduce Pepco, guide them through the new store and hand over a check to "SOS Children's Villages". In addition to the ongoing commitment to NGO facilities, children and young people from the Berlin facility are invited to shop at Pepco for free after the shop has opened at Potsdamer Platz. The store manager of the new branch, Danijela Pervan, is originally from Croatia, where she started as a cashier at Pepco in 2018.
The pre-opening event begins on November 30, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. in front of the new branch in the basement of "The Playce" on Potsdamer Platz. In addition to the opportunity to visit the store before it opens, Aleksandr Cikaidze, Retail Director, as well as Patrick Steiger and Manuela Gräber from Pepco are available for questions and interviews. Snacks and drinks are also provided, including the first mulled wine of the season.
