DRAGOMIR DIMITROV, “VAZRAZHDANE MARKETS“ EAD: 60 THOUSAND PEOPLE VISIT ZHENSKI PAZAR MARKET EVERY DAY, WE ARE LAUNCHING HOME AND OFFICE DELIVERIES OF BULGARIAN GOODS AND PRODUCTS
Sofia. Approximately 60 thousand people visit Zhenski Pazar Market every day – this is a historical landmark in the heart of the capital city. Commented for Focus Radio ‘s Morning Programme “Good Morning, Bulgaria“, Dragomir Dimitrov, Executive Director of municipal company „Vazrazhdane Markets“ EAD, clarifying that many generations of residents of Sofia have been raised with food, bought there.
He continued, saying that the change in the attitudes of the residents and guests of Sofia, towards Zhenski Pazar Market was a long and complex process, including a clear concept – while preserving its specificities and unique character, the market should become a modern social urban space, where people will be glad to go. “Zhenski Pazar Market has always been of interest to the people of Sofia, because it is not merely an ordinary market, but has integrated the history of Sofia’s development.
We are trying to develop it, making it a modern space. This will save the markets from the competition of other retail operators, such as the large chains. We have planned, for example, the installation of charging stations for electric vehicles. We are currently installing cutting-edge CCTV, new LED lighting, we are replacing shutters and canopies with the most modern and the best possible components for the market environment. And also – this would improve the urban environment, which is a part of the market would turn it into a truly attractive place for the residents and visitors of Sofia. We have solved almost completely the issue, related to the security and cleanliness of the market, which are probably the most important components, when designing and constructing market platforms. We have opened an office of the Third Police Precinct at Zhenski Pazar Market – a thing that also contributes to the public security. We have installed LED lighting almost everywhere.
The interest in Zhenski Pazar Market in terms of number of visitors and renting of commercial areas is exceptionally high and numbers prove that“, commented Dragomir Dimitrov. He noted that despite the busy everyday lives, limited time and ling distances, especially in the metropolitan city, everybody wants to consume real food of good origin. And this is what gave rise to the idea that starting in the summer of 2019, Zhenski Pazar Market should start delivering products to people’s homes and offices, clarified Dragomir Dimitrov.
This would help people buy high quality food from Bulgarian producers, and on the other hand would then bring those people to the actual market, to see where they are buying their products from, he explained.
