Stockmann is the oldest and biggest department store in Helsinki. It is part of a chain with branches in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia.
You get almost everything at Stockmannns, from Finnish souvenirs to cars. There is even a 4-storey Academic bookstore of Stockmann next to the department store.
Stockmann is basically a huge department store with a very large variety of things to buy.
The store is 8 stories tall and each floor is utilized for a different theme. The themes are: men's clothing, women's clothing, children's clothing/toys, sporting goods, electronics, appliances, food, and it even has a bakery.
This is where a lot of locals buy their products, and if you are lucky you can go during a big sale, like I did. They were having "Hullut Paivat" which means "Crazy Days" when I was there in April 2012. Someone explained to me that this was like "Black Friday" in the United States, where tons of things are on sale.
What to buy: You probably won't find many souvenirs here, but if you need to make any practical purchases this would be the place to go.
The Stockmann department store is a culturally significant business building and department store located in the centre of Helsinki. The Stockmann logo represents a set of escalators, because the first escalators in Finland were installed in the Stockmann department store in Helsinki.
The clock at the main entrance, colloquailly "Stockan kello" ("Stockmann's clock"), has become a symbol of Helsinkian city culture as a popular meeting place.
What to buy: It sells almost everything you need, food, furniture, flowers, toys, shoes, designer clothing (from Polo to Dolce & Gabbana) and books (in a different building next door called ''Akateeminen Kirjakauppa'').
Stockmann is a Finnish fast expanding listed company engaged in the retail trade. The company was established in 1862. Stockmann's four divisions are the Department Store Division, the fashion store chains Lindex and Seppälä and Hobby Hall, which is specialized in distance retail.
The Stockmann shopping mall in Helsinki is the biggest mall in Finland but also the most expensive. So if your on a tight budget dont even bother to go inside.
Out of curiosity, I stopped in the Stockmann Department Store in Helsinki. It is a very large department store in a central location with a wide variety of merchandise. If you need anything while in Helsinki (like warmer clothes!), Stockmann is a good choice.

In fact, the biggest department store in any of the Nordic countries. You don't realise it until you have been in it for a while and see no end :))) Here you will find all sorts of clothes and things you expect from a department store, but also several cafes and a very good assortment of Finnish quality souvenirs. The only thing I was disappointed with was the toy area which was small and not very unique compared to say KDW in Berlin or other famous stores.
What to buy: Finnish glass like Iittala, Marimekko clothes and things, Moomin toys and clothes...
The main body of the store was completed in 1930 by Sigurd Frosterus, the new section was designed by Kristian Gullichsen, Erkki Kairamo and Timo Vormala, and the shop has taken up the entire block since 1989.
Monday - Friday 09:00 - 21:00
Saturday 09:00 - 18:00
Sunday 12:00 - 18:00 (from May 22 until August 28)
I was told on my sightseeing tour of Helsinki that it was said of Stockmanns, "if they don't have it, then you don't need it". Stockmanns is a department store with clothes for people of every age, electronic goods, books, sporting goods, cosmetics, furniture... there is even a supermarket downstairs.
Basically, for anything you're looking for, come here :)
Mon - Fri: 9am - 9pm
Sat: 9am - 6pm
Sun: 12pm - 6pm
What to pay: Depends on what you buy - prices seemed to be around average.
