Nama, or NAMA, is the acronym for Narodni magazin 'national store'. This was a chain of department stores in the former SFRY (Yugoslavia) and the first Slovenian department store. Nama owns three stores in Slovenia today:
- At 1 Tomšič Street (Slovene: Tomšičeva ulica 1) in Ljubljana. The main facade fronts Slovenian Street (Slovene: Slovenska cesta), across from the Central Post Office.
- G-Star Raw store in the BTC City (Citypark), Ljubljana
- At 14 Capuchin Square (Kapucinski trg 14) in Škofja Loka (facing the main bus station).
The seven-storey original building of the NAMA store in Ljubljana, originally known as "Service Hall" (Dom službe), was completed in 1939 upon plans by the architect Franjo Lušičić. It was built in the modern style by the construction company owned by Josip Dedek. In 1965, a new building, work by the architects Bogdan Fink and Miloš Lapajne, was added to it at its southern side. In 2002, at the restoration, its facade was redesigned in glass, despite the opposition of the original authors.
