Seva Group yesterday celebrated the Grand Opening of the company’s first duty free store, a border shop in Metković some 200 metres from the road crossing into Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Moodie Davitt Report was the sole media to attend, joining leading suppliers, company officials and local VIPS for the opening.
A day of celebrations began with a visit to the Dutch group’s 4,300sq m bonded warehouse in Ploče (which will be doubled in space next year), followed by the inauguration of the Seva Duty Free store at a ceremony by the city’s Deputy Mayor.
Guests then crossed the border into Bosnia and Herzegovina for a memorable evening at Seva Group’s Rubis winery, near the city of Mostar.
Seva Group Founder and Owner Severino Pusic told guests that the opening represented a landmark for the company, the first duty free store for the fast-growing real estate to wines & spirits distribution company. Already, he said, plans are in place for further stores.
