The largest kids store in Moscow, Detskiy Mir (Kids’ World) in Lubyanka St., has to change its name after reconstruction, says the President of Gals-Development, the company holding reconstruction of the kids’ shopping center, reports RIA News.
The brand “Detskiy Mir” is registered to another company, the retail chain “Detskiy Mir”. That is why the store will be called The Central Kids’ Store in Lubyanka St., says the official.
The Central Kids’ Store in Lubyanka St. is to offer a new concept. It will be like a city square, which can place various events, such as kids festivals and New Year’s Days. At the moment Gals-Development has listed about 200 potential retailers to fill in the renovated kids’ store.
The reconstruction of the historical building is to change 90% of its prior interior design. The store Detskiy Mir was constructed in 1953-1957 by the project of the architect A. Dushkin. It was closed for the reconstruction on 1 July 2008.
