The new Gleba shop will open its doors in Princípe Real, in what is known as one of Lisbon’s trendiest neighbourhoods. Savills Portugal Retail department was responsible for advising on the entire operation.
With nine shops in the Greater Lisbon area, Gleba continues its growth trajectory in the city, presenting a differentiating concept of heritage-led innovation, based on timeless principles to innovate and create value. The brand, which uses entirely local cereals to create its own flour, was looking for a space to bring its authenticity to a new area of the city.
Savills thus found the space that provides the perfect match for the client’s needs. Situated in a highly visible location, this space is part of an old building, conveying an identity that is totally in line with its “star” product.
Here, customers will find a highly differentiated range of groceries, with authentic products of unrivalled quality that complement and elevate Gleba’s signature product: the bread. This is the ideal shop for those who want to quickly buy breakfast, a snack or a drink, since the existing cafeteria offer includes the speciality coffee to go. This Gleba space is also the perfect stop before lunch or dinner, as it also has products suitable for starters and light meals.
Diogo Amorim, CEO of Gleba, emphasises: “All our shops are special and the tenth couldn’t be any different. In this one, in the heart of Príncipe Real, we include speciality coffee in our daily offer and we assume, as we do every day, the brand we are: young and cosmopolitan, always attentive to its surroundings while creating its own path; open to the city, to those who live in it and to those who visit it; unafraid to evolve and grow, in a year that will see more openings, more innovation, more transformation.”
José Galvão, Head of Retail, Savills Portugal, points out: “Savills looks on this operation with special affection as it has collaborated in the placement of a brand combining tradition and innovation in a neighbourhood that values authenticity. If there are perfect marriages, the placement of Gleba in Príncipe Real is one of those successful stories.”
