Company Overview

Kidzone is the official franchise operator of Jumbo in Bosnia & Herzegovina. The main activity of Jumbo is games trading for children, children’s items, baby care items, books, stationaries, decoration, and seasonal products. Jumbo is the loveliest brand for children and also for adults, because of the wide range of over 30.000 products, their variety, unique design, and the best prices in the market, which makes Jumbo an attraction for all.

On 4 May 2017 Jumbo inaugurated the first store at Bosnia’s Capital City, in Sarajevo, and in December 2017 the first store at Banja Luka and the second one for Bosnia&Herzegovina. With a giant surface, modern infrastructure, and with valuable services Jumbo has turned an attraction for all cities where it is located and also for other places around. Innovations and challenges of the Balfin Group, which Jumbo is part of, have turned into an unstoppable journey.

During 2018-2019, Jumbo opened three new stores in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Mostar, Cazin, and Bijeljina, in a festive atmosphere, with modern infrastructure and technology, and in 2021 the sixth Jumbo store was opened in Tuzla.

Jumbo operates in 4 different markets in the Balkan region, in Albania, Kosovo, Bosnia Herzegovina, and Montenegro, with 19 large superstores. The next Kid Zone plan of expansion will be investing in a new market, beyond the Balkan region, in Moldova.
