109,464 people visited Galeria Victoria in its first weekend (October 16-17 2010). Galeria Victoria's customers were counted by the Swedish company Viametrics, the leading international supplier and administrator of visitor counting systems for shopping malls, retail chains and public buildings, which provided the systems to measure footfall in the shopping mall. This huge number of visitors to Galeria Victoria is a good indicator of the success of this first retail and entertainment center in Walbrzych and the surrounding region.
