Plaza’s vision is to continue to be the best shopping, business and leisure destination in Malta. We seek to achieve this through the constant adaptation towards the dynamic market we operate in, as well as seeking to meet our customers changing needs, wants and expectations.

For the past twenty years, our objectives sought to maintain our leadership status in an industry constantly attracting new entrants. The company’s ability to align its resources to meet its objectives were key factors that assisted Plaza Centres plc to achieve its competitive advantage. These strategies involved the alignment of its human resources and the company’s assets with its capacity to adapt to the changes taking place in the external environment.

Our dedicated, loyal, customer focused and highly trained human resources were a central factor that contributed towards Plaza’s success. The company‘s principal activity is to lease, manage, maintain and market the Plaza Shopping and Business Centre in the heart of Sliema’s Commercial area. A secondary activity is the development of new extensions to the company’s existing building. During the past ten years, Plaza Centres plc embarked on three extension projects, increasing its rentable areas by an additional 4,000 s.m.

Plaza Centres p.l.c. is Malta’s foremost Shopping and Commercial Centre situated at the heart of Sliema’s commercial and shopping district.

The company’s origins go back to 1957 when the site where the present Commercial Centre stands was developed into the Plaza Cinema. During the late 1980s, the company closed down its cinema operations and developed the site into the country’s first managed shopping and office leasing centre. The Plaza Commercial Centre first opened its doors in December 1993 and has since earned a reputation as a convenient one stop shop, for quality goods and services, its choice of local and international brand names, as a safe and clean environment and for hosting the “best names under one roof.”

The Plaza Commercial Centre comprises a mix of retail, catering and office suites spread over nine floors built around a central atrium. From the onset, the focus was on attaining the best retail and office tenants. In this respect, changing consumer lifestyles had a direct influence on the shopping-centre experience as consumers search for quality, international brand names and value for money. Creating an enjoyable shopping environment has been one of the company’s key objectives and this approach has been enhanced through the company’s business relationships with tenants, customers, suppliers, investors and the general public along the system value chain.

For the past twenty years the Centre averaged between 1.8 million and 2 million visitors per year with August and December being peak months and in 2017 reached just under 2.2 million visitors. The Plaza Commercial Centre has set industry standards and enjoys a competitive advantage with respect to performance, quality, location and perception.

Aug 28 - Suiteblanco Autumn/Winter '15/'16

November 2015 – March 2016. On this date as a framework BLANCO begins a new stage in which we will find a collection that unifies all the insurgence of UK but remaining strong Spanish roots, paying tribute to the BLANCO heritage.

November starts with a Tartan Collection, hot groups of plaid separates delicately set against white lace blouses, sheer chiffon tops, pretty poplin dresses and super soft Aran knits. A new collection of supple Napa leather looks to accessories will be introduced throughout the month and will become into key purchases that will last and can be updated.

Close to Christmas time a new sophistication with long lengths, traditional embellishments and bold Gold & Black jacquards will define the Spanish Collection. Black lace knits, bold spot contrasts and 3D trims bring classic shapes alive and hone the heritage aspect of this range. Not to forget micro hot pants and evening wear to die for.

And then the Accessory of accessories: the fringed clutch bag, perfect for daily chic outfits or to go with that special party dress (and the earrings to match!).

Cheers for a new beginning!
