The Dole shopping center, established in 1997, was the first shopping mall in Latvia to be designed according to Western standards. Dole is currently the main shopping center of Riga’s Latgale district. Its primary focus is on providing a comprehensive offer of everyday goods and services to customers from the immediate neighborhood while maintaining a pleasant and comfortable shopping environment. This shopping center boasts a modern infrastructure, which creates new retail opportunities for its tenants.
Located in a densely populated area, Dole Shopping Center offers an extensive selection of goods and services for the whole family. Dole was built next to Maskavas Street, one of the main access roads to Riga, taking advantage of its busy car, bus, and tram traffic. Dole was strategically positioned to be easily accessible for drivers and pedestrians from both sides of the roadway.
Dole is home to 70 stores spread out across a floor space of nearly 10,000 m2 on three levels. The Rimi supermarket, located on the first floor, occupies a considerable proportion of the shopping center. Various consumer service providers, banks, cafés, and small retail stores are located alongside the Rimi.
Up on the second level, shoppers can visit clothing and footwear stores, retailers selling a variety of household goods, as well as other specialized stores, while the third level offers a wide range of furniture.
The Dole shopping center was named after the nearby Dole Island located on the Daugava River. Nowadays the brand name embodies a land of peace and prosperity that provides the local residents with their everyday goods and services. Dole is an active participant in the marketing activities of the Galactico alliance, thus forming closer ties with its loyal customers by offering them the chance to take part in attractive promotions and to collect points with their purchases.
Galactico is a service quality brand uniting five popular shopping centres in Latvia, namely, Alfa, Origo, Galerija Centrs, Mols and Dole.
Galactico provides its demanding customers with a more enjoyable, more convenient and more rewarding shopping experience than that offered by individual competitors.
