Pepco, which has over 1,000 stores across Europe, soon plans to open first stores in Croatia within the Retail Park Supernova Zagreb and Shopping Center Garden Mall. Pepco is a European chain of discount shops offering apparel for the entire family and household products at lowest prices. They have been growing dynamically in Poland for more than a dozen years. Pepco has become the most popular seller of children’s clothing and a leading supplier of decorative products.
Pepco has been investing in the Polish retail market since 1999; initially under the Poundstretcher brand. The first Pepco shop was opened in 2004 when they became a part of Pepkor, a South African investment holding. Ten years later Pepkor was incorporated into Steinhoff International Holdings Limited, a major international group which owns 42 retail brands in 44 countries across Europe, Africa and Australia.
The European PEPCO chain employs more than 9,000 people, among them more than 450 in the Poznań head office and 400 employees in their distribution center.
