The colorful brand mix of the 172 stores of the Paunsdorf Center, P.C. for short, leaves nothing to be desired: In the invitingly designed stores along the busy shopping streets, a comprehensive range of fashion, beauty, lifestyle, multimedia and sports products awaits customers who are eager to make purchases. More than seven million of these customers find their way to the conveniently located mall in the east of the Saxon metropolis every year. In 1994, it was one of the first to be built after reunification and has since been a popular meeting place, especially for families.

For the 9th time in a row, visitors have voted the P.C. as Germany’s most family-friendly shopping center in 2021. Here, parents and their children are not only warmly welcome, they can also look forward to a great deal of comfort: In addition to spacious family parking spaces, there are several nappy-changing rooms and a free buggy rental service. Members of the VIP loyalty program can use the P.C. Kids Club with its great playing and tobogganing facilities free of charge. They can also take the center’s own train, the P.C. Express, through the mall and relax with a delicious drink in the P.C. Lounge.

Events attract many visitors to the center

Visitors spend an average of 68 minutes in the comfortable ambience of the shopping center. The center with its eye-catching green and orange interior design offers an excellent stage for all those who want to present their brand and products to a curious audience. Temporary sales concepts such as pop-up stores meet with just as much interest as targeted campaigns on the large advertising spaces in popular areas of the center.

Again and again the P.C. is also the scene of unique events for young and old. Every year the center is transformed into a fairytale Christmas and winter world – with the world’s largest walk-in elf tree, rustic Christmas bakery and skating rink directly in front of the mall. During the popular summer cinema event, a parking garage level becomes a movie palace. Cinema enthusiasts can then look forward to a different cinema hit every day, from spectacular action classics to touching romance. And in the traditional Center Run, runners compete on tricky routes through the main aisles and parking garages.

A variety of offers in a relaxed atmosphere

Talking of sporting highlights: In September 2020, the Bushido Sports Center in the P.C. opened its doors to all fitness junkies, martial artists and powerhouses and of course their offspring. Anyone who has an appetite for a refreshment afterwards is invited to discover the center’s diverse culinary offerings: Here, fast food fans and gourmets get their money’s worth. The cute center mascots Clara, Paul and Co., the “Paunsis”, contribute to the feel-good ambience for the whole family, which is a place where one likes to immerse oneself again and again.

If you too would like to move into the P.C. with your brand and your product, our experienced consultants will be happy to assist you and help you to realize your wishes.
