What's the point of Thursdays

From Thursday it makes sense new in Neuwied

"Two of the days before the opening, the branch is already looking great." Friedrich-Wilhelm Göbel, General Representative of Sinn, was extremely satisfied when he presented the almost completed 23rd branch of his chain in Neuwied on Tuesday. Since the end of January in the middle of Mittelstrasse - the pedestrian zone of the Westerwald city - has been extensively rebuilt, now the craftsmen are only doing residual work.

As of Thursday, the house, which was previously used by Leininiger and then by Moses, will be offering mainly women, men and women from the middle segment on 3500 square meters and five floors. The house offers 60 brands, such as Opus, Toni, Marc O'Polo, S.Oliver, Betty Barclay, Roy Robson, Lerros, Camel active, also PME Legend and Timezone, as well as lingerie labels such as Triumpf, Sloggi, Mey or Schiesser . "There are no own brands," as Göbel emphasized.

At the introduction, those familiar with the local scene seemed relieved that the house was trading again, in competition - because the property had been vacant since January 2018. "I hope that we will find imitators with other retailers with our example," said Göbel, referring to the frequency in the city - and immediately drew the mayor's attention to the fact that the city administration still has a lot to do with the parking situation and the signs in the city center could improve. C&A, H&M and Esprit are also active on the market in the vicinity.

Lutz Hockemeier, who has worked for Sinn for many years and is also the manager of the branches in Koblenz, is the local boss. The almost 40 employees between the ages of 18 and 62 come partly from previous users Moses and Leiniger, partly from other Sinn houses or from other dealers.

Lots of skylights and windows that are not covered with back walls allow plenty of light into the house. If you believe locals who have known the house for a long time, that was not always the case. The new - energy-saving - LED lighting and the bright, also new vinyl floor in wood look contribute significantly to the impression.

With a total of 1,300 square meters, womenswear dominates, menswear follows with 1,000 square meters, and laundry is offered on 500 square meters.
