Linstow’s first shopping centre was Dole, which it began to build in 1996 and opened up in February 1997. Dole featured a new combination of local and Norwegian stores, arranged in accordance with the requirements of a modern shopping centre. Dole successfully passed the test in terms of an entirely new retailing concept in the Baltic States, and this encouraged Linstow to pursue other activities in the capital cities of the three countries.
The Dole shopping centre was opened in 1997 and this was the first shopping mall in Latvia that conformed to the Western standards. Today Dole is a regional shopping center that is focusing mostly on the customers from its immediate surroundings, offering them everyday goods and services, convenient shopping, and a cozy environment. The center has been improved with modern infrastructure and new retail opportunities.
