Sepsiszentgyörgy shopping mall investors promise bilingualism

Investors in the Sepsi Value Centre shopping mall will keep in mind the multilingual nature of the area targeted by their investment. In a bilingual letter sent to the Mikó Imre Association for the Protection of Minority Rights, the Bucharest-based real estate developer Prime Kapital promised to respect the linguistic requirements of the area and adapt to its local character.

The letter was written as a reply to a formal request from the Mikó Imre Association asking Prime Kapital to use Hungarian inscriptions, hire Hungarian-speaking employees, and sell local products.

Prime Kapital’s investment in the mall is estimated at EUR 25 million. The first hypermarket in Kovászna/Covasna County will occupy 16,000 square meters, and, when it opens next spring, will carry major brands including Sportissimo, New Yorker, Sinsay, Orsay, KFC, and Spartan; customers will be able to shop at locally known retailers and service providers inside the complex as well.
