The big discount days "Let’s take it!" organized by Akropole shopping and entertainment centre, which attract thousands of customers, will not take place this spring. Such decision was made in order to prevent gathering of many people and to take care of the safety of both employees and every single visitor.
“Although the restrictions imposed during the state of emergency have been relaxed, the most important thing now is to remain vigilant and continue taking care of the health and safety of ourselves and those around you. The safety of our employees and visitors is an absolute priority, which is why this year we will not organize the big discount days “Let’s take it!”. We are currently experiencing a gradual increase in the number of visitors, and the shops and restaurants that had temporarily closed are gradually resuming their operation and are welcoming their customers with attractive spring offers. However, it must be remembered that safety comes first, so we continue to monitor and implement all necessary security measures,” says Akropole shopping and entertainment centre CEO Zane Kaktiņa.

Concerning organisation of “Let’s take it!” in the autumn of this year, Akropole administration will make the decision, assessing the current situation and the necessary safety requirements.

Cafes and restaurants, beauty, jewellery, pet goods, food and other stores located at Akropole have also prepared some really nice offers.
“We have noticed that more and more visitors of Akropole shop for not only food, but also for clothing, footwear, cosmetics and other goods. It is obvious that people are gradually returning to their normal pace of life and want to refresh their wardrobe, so there are more and more spring-summer fashion news in the tenants’ offer, and now the stores offer really nice discounts,” says Zane Kaktiņa.
