In the twenty-first century, people can no longer imagine their lives without shopping centers. Their number is growing every day. In almost every locality there is a large building with several shops inside. In large cities, they are built in all areas and are very popular among the population. They house clothing and footwear stores, hypermarkets with appliances and sporting goods, numerous cafes and restaurants, beauty salons, cinemas, amateur studios, and so on.
Often people come to them just to take a walk, especially on weekends. As a rule, shopping centers get their names thanks to local cultural monuments located near attractions and metro stations. Sometimes the founders put a hidden meaning into them. Thus, the network of shopping centers "Ark" got its name in honor of the mythical Noah's ark, on which, as the legend says,everything was there.
Shopping center "Ark"
The network is fairly new and includes a few buildings so far. One of them is the Kovcheg shopping center in Mitino, built in 2015 in the north-west of Moscow. Its location is chosen as well as possible: right at the exit of the metro station of the same name. So it won't be hard to get to it. On the official website, the founder draws attention to the fact that he created his network, guided by a paraphrased oriental wisdom: “A good shopping center is when those who are nearby are satisfied and those who are far away come.”
The main slogan of the network: "Everything you need in one place." And the creator really adheres to it: inside the building there are several dozens of various establishments: from optics stores to restaurants. The list of stores in the shopping center "Ark" in Mitino is really impressive.
Sport is life. Do you need skis for school? Decided to take up figure skating? Nothing to wear to the gym? So you are already expected here. The store is located on the second floor of the shopping center and occupies it completely. You can go up there either by the elevator, which is located immediately opposite the main entrance to the building, or by the escalator to the right of the elevator.
The name speaks for itself - the largest hypermarket of sporting goods and clothing with a wide range. Opening hours of "Sportmaster" in the shopping center "Ark" in Mitino from 10:00 to 22:00, which coincides with the work of the entire building and almost allstores and salons located in it.
A small paradise for the fair sex is never empty: colorful and fragrant jars beckon girls and women to come in. Finding L'Etoile is easy: as soon as you enter the mall, to the right of the glass doors you will see a store sign.

Video has almost any home appliances: smartphones, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, meat grinders and much more. Competent consultants will not let you get lost: you can find them throughout the hypermarket. They are always happy to help you choose the right product.

Rating of the institution and feedback on its work
As you can see, in the "Ark" you can not only make purchases, but also have a good time. Due to its relatively small area, it ranks eighth in the ranking of Mitino shopping centers.
However, the residents of the area, despite this, are satisfied with his work - this can be seen from the large number of positive reviews on various sites.

The administration of the center regularly works out emerging complaints in order to improve the quality of services provided. You can leave a review or claim on social networks or by phone. All contacts are listed on the official website of the network.
The shopping center "Kovcheg" is one of the most popular in its area. In addition to it, there are two more large shopping centers near the Mitino metro station. But they all complement each other: one has a cinema, the other stores goods for creativity. Such a concentration of retail outlets is very convenient: it would be impossible to put everything in one building. Our grandparents could only dream of such a thing. Therefore, in conclusion, I would like to say that we are incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to visit all the necessary stores, while being in the same building of the shopping center.
