Did you know all Almeida Junior malls have a “Family Area”?

All Almeida Junior malls believe in promoting the well-being and comfort of their visitors. Amongst the areas available in the 6 malls that are part of our chain, we highlight the “Family Area”: it is indeed special because it has that touch of home warmth. It contains baby changing stations, an area for feeding babies and infants, a family restroom, as well as a toy library and a resting area.


The main goal of those areas is to meet the needs of the families, especially those with small children that require diaper changing or a place to breastfeed or to heat up baby food. For your convenience, those environments were carefully designed, with attention to each detail, including lighting and ambiance (with pleasant colors). Some restrooms are exclusively for disabled people and others are specially designed for children (with children dimensions).



For women carrying infants, our infrastructure is ideal: it gives them comfort and tranquility while breastfeeding. There are individual cabins with armchairs to provide privacy at this precious moment. For bigger children, there are special children chairs for eating. And there are also baby changing stations with individual baby changing tables and extra sinks for hygiene.


We did not forget other accompanying members of the family or friends, who can enjoy our resting areas while the children play in the toys library which provide children tables and chairs so that they can read books, play and color.


Almeida Junior malls recycle more than 50 tons per month

An inherent concern of Almeida Junior is to provide a more sustainable experience for the next generations. In addition to several actions that are already being carried out – such as the installation of electric car chargers, the replacement of LED mercury lamps, the capture of rainwater and the disposal of wastebaskets in the toilets – the correct disposal of waste is one of the most important.


The six businesses in the chain have trash bins scattered throughout the mall and especially in the food court to receive their waste – whether organic, paper, metal, plastic, glass or cooking oil used in restaurants. About 44.8 tons of cardboard and paper, nearly three tons of plastics, another 715 kilos of metal items and about 6,081 kilos of vegetable oil are collected and separated per month. Organic waste is removed by a specialized composting company.




How it’s done

  • The shopkeepers themselves already contribute by pre-separating the materials.
  • Then, in the food court, where there are the plates and cutlery collection islands, the waste is also separated.
  • These materials are taken to a recycling center where they are sorted and pressed for transport.
  • Vegetable oil is packaged in plastic bottles and removed by a recycling company.
  • All of these materials have a destination certificate to be well received at processing companies.
  • In addition to common waste, construction waste is also collected in specific shipping containers and sent to certified landfills.
