In the second year of the coronavirus pandemic, trade centers continued to face the crisis successfully. What certainly worked in their favor was the much more relaxed policy of anti-covid measures toward the populace and the economy, which, in 2020, due to the lockdown and the fear of the unknown, caused the mass migration of customers to online platforms.

Last year, we witnessed the return of people to shopping centers, but also an increased number of investments in this field. Large investors either realized or began new investments in the Serbian markets, and a considerable number of arrivals of new investors was announced as well.

Let’s take a look at the list of investments in trade centers which drew the most attention from eKapija’s readers in 2021:

In late April, the shopping mall Delta Planet opened in Nis. The first Delta Planet in Serbia has 40,000 m2, on two floors, and with 850 parking spaces for the visitors, and it was built in only 14 months.
