The history of the company dates back to 1957, when it started its activity as PTSB TRANSBUD Lublin dealing in specialized transport and transloading of building materials.
In 1994, it transformed into a limited liability company and took the name: Przedsiębiorstwo Handlowo – Usługowo-Transportowe TRANSHURT. The first wholesale market in Lublin named
‘Na Górce” was created in the area belonging to this company in 1992, gathering about 500 local wholesalers and retailers from various industries.
After seven years, it was decided to change the company’s image and use its properties better. The first step was the adaptation of buildings and rooms for the activities of Centrum Motoryzacyjno – Techniczne CMT – the largest and only complex of this industry in Poland. There were about 80 companies related to the automotive sector, including warehouses and stores with spare parts, service and diagnostic stations, vehicle control station and car wash within a total area of 8,000 sqm.
OLIMP Shopping Centre debuted in October 2000 at Spółdzielczości Pracy street. The first facility, which has 10,600 sqm, has 60 companies representing well-known clothing, footwear and cosmetics brands. Attractive offer, high quality of service, convenient access and a large parking lot contributed to the interest of customers and subsequent investments.
The shopping centre was expanding in 2003 and 2005, becoming the largest shopping centre in Lublin. After three stages of expansion, the Gallery had nearly 20,000 sqm, it housed around 140 commercial and service companies representing the best brands of clothing, footwear, cosmetics, interior design and many other industries.
In 2007, another extension of Galeria Olimp took place. Construction of a new, largest shopping centre facility in Lublin has begun in the plot on the southern side of the complex. The investment was completed in mid-2009. As a result, the fourth part of Galeria Olimp was created, comprising four floors, including two underground ones. Its total area is almost 65,000 sqm. The southern part, called Olimp IV, was connected to the existing Galeria Olimp facilities, with a glazed connector above ul. Magnoliowa forming one coherent whole with them.
Galeria Olimp gained a new part in November 2013, which was created in the northern zone of the complex. The construction of the facility began in 2012, in the area of the former Automotive and Technical Centre. The facility has 18,000 sqm of the surface and covers three floors, connected directly with the central section passages at each level.
The main purpose of this part of the Gallery is the entertainment function. Multikino is the most important element of the offer. This is the first cinema multiplex in Lublin to be in this network. A spacious food court zone has been created with a rich gastronomic offer, next to the cinema, on the first floor level.
