Shopping is an element of Lodz heritage and identity. Here is where the factory owners and merchants used to run garment houses which offered luxurious goods manufactured by the huge factories. The ground floors of the big city tenement houses, however, house lavish clothing shops, shoes shops, and restaurants.
Contemporary “heirs” to those traditions are shopping centers. The heart of the city once again beats at Poznański’s factory. Revitalized post-factory buildings nowadays have new, including commercial, functions. Manufaktura is not only elegant shops, boutiques, and restaurants. It is also a place of events, entertainment, recreation, and culture.
Each shopping center in Lodz has its own unique atmosphere. One of a kind post-industrial Manufaktura, suburban Port Łódź with the huge IKEA shop, downtown Galeria Łódzka, or located near the academic campus, Sukcesja – they form just a part of the commercial offer of Lodz.
Shopping, eating, at the cinema, on a concert, in a couple or the entire family…and you, how do you spend your time here?
