Sambil is not a threat for stores in downtown

SambilWILLEMSTAD – The large Sambil mall is not a threat to the shopkeepers in downtown Punda. This is according to the sales and marketing representative Ashanty Bonafasia. “Many retailers who have shops in Punda have also opened a store in Sambil.” The organization expects that by the end of May, two thirds of the property will be finished for a soft opening.

About half of two-thirds of the property are already rented. The terrain at Veeris covers an area of ​​35.000 square meters and has space for 156 stores, a food court, movie theater with six screens and 1,400 parking spaces. "We hope to receive 8,000 visitors a day after the soft opening," Bonafasia said. The grand opening will be in late October and the entire property will be accessible.

The architecture of the building from looks like the shape of a fish from above. "This is a tribute to the island because we are surrounded by water," Bonafasia indicated. The different sections will be named after the Curacao beaches.
