Ruhr Park Bochum: Surprise – Center Manager makes a big announcement
Im Ruhr Park Bochum did not want to return to everyday life in 2021. Lockdown, mask requirement, 2G rule – the shopping experience this year was again a very special one. The constant changes to the Corona Protection Ordinance also presented the shopping center with major tasks.
Together with DER WESTEN, the center manager of the Ruhr Park Bochum, Andreas Ulmer, now back to the year 2021. He kept a big announcement for the customers until the end.
Ruhr Park Bochum draws a surprising balance
The Ruhr Park Bochum can look back on an eventful year 2021. Almost every week, those responsible had to adjust to new corona measures and implement them as quickly as possible.
Not all specifications met with the understanding of the customers. For example, the mask requirement within the “open-air shopping center”. (DER WESTEN reported >>>)
Nevertheless, the customers remained largely loyal to the Ruhr Park, especially towards the summer, according to Center Manager Andreas Ulmer. “With the easing, visitor numbers and sales quickly recovered.” And the Christmas business in many product segments did not suffer too much from the re-tightened 2G regulation. “The Christmas business was of course weaker than the years before the pandemic. But we’re not as far away as you might think, ”says the center manager. The big rush did not materialize, but overall the number of visitors remained stable.
Ulmer is particularly proud of one point: “We haven’t lost a tenant due to the pandemic. Even tenants who were on the brink could all be held. We were also able to welcome nine other concepts in the Ruhrpark. ”The new stores in the shopping center included, for example, the local Baltz fashion store on the ground floor, as well as the Lucardi jeweler and the Lascana women’s fashion boutique.

We also think hard about leisure activities. ”And further:“ We’re working on two things that don’t yet exist in the Ruhrpark. But there are also 1-2 stores that are considering expanding, ”Ulmer reveals.
