A NEW shopping centre is set to create 1,500 jobs when it opens its doors in October this year.
Builders are working at full speed to have the establishment ready on time.
And 90 per cent of the shop plots have been let out already. Well-known brands which have already reserved spaces include Leyroy Merlin, Mediamark, Zara, Pull and bear, Yelmo, Mango, H&M and Primark.
Job hunters can apply on the brands’ own websites. But the Leyroy Merlin DIY megastore is collaborating with Almeria City Council to fill 160 vacancies.
“We are going to have the number ones in leisure, fashion, restaurants and of course specialized shops, according to Javier Martin, the Bogaris retail development chief driving the project.
In a statement Martin said: “If everything goes in our favour we will be opening in the final week of October or the first week in November.”
It will be one of our company’s greatest successes and I hope for Almeria too,” he added.
The Bogaris boss toured the new construction in Torrecardenas with Almeria’s mayor Roman Fernandez Pacheco.
He was pleased with the development and said it will help Almeria regenerate its commercial prowess at a regional level.
The Torrecardenas outlet will also be linked to a state of the art cinema complex and serve a population of more than 3000,000 residents.
