    Stockmann: The centre of the shopping universe

    by gordonilla Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shop is described as the Nordic region's largets department store. I can well beleive it. It is a typical department vstore, with some 7 floors and a number of sub ground floor levels of shops and parking.

    There are restauarants and coffee shops, and all the general stuff traditional store should have available for customers of all ages and tastes.

    The 6th Floor Restaurant and the Terrace Bar are popular with tourists and locals alike.

    There are now a number of extra subterranean walk ways which can connect the store to the outside especially handy when rainy or very cold!

    It does seem that everyone in helsinki uses some aspect of the store as part of their lives. Even if it is only the clock outside one of the entrances which is used as a "meeting point".

    Stockmann: Biggest shop

    by helimaarit Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Stockmann can be found from the central of Helsinki and also from Itäkeskus-shopping center.
    You can find almost anything from there - but maybe not at the lowest prices.

    My favourite departments are music and perfume department.

    Stockmann: The one shop that has it all

    by Igraine Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Its huge! 6 floors with all kinds of goods, most of them clothes. This shop has most international brands and local design.
    But also electronics, interior design, deli shop and several restaurants and coffee shops.
    Seperate from the main store is the bookshop. Wide variety of books also a big english section. And Finnish writers translated in ie German and French.

    What to buy: I am always looking at interior things, ranging from porcelain to tea clothes to art.
    This shop has a nice collection of hand blown glass birds from Toikka (part of Ittala)

    What to pay: As much as you want, have, can afford, can keep your wallet closed.

    Stockmann: Clothes, Clothes, Clothes

    by morninglory Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Everybody shops here :D.

    What to buy: Clothing. Price range from medium to high. Depends on what you are buying. They have good quality of clothing compare if you buy from Bangkok of course it's cheap but after one wash it shrinks! You know what i'm talking about, don't you?

    This is the greatest department store in Helsinki (and Finland).
    Most items are of quality here, prices can be good for value but sometimes expensive. Occasionally you can find great items on reduce price, which is great barging and tempting of buying.

    What to buy: Everything. From my underware to to my car, I bought them both here :)

    If you like shopping in Helsinki go away center and visit markets or Stores away of turists way. But if you prefer shop like in your country and more expensive then visit the stores in esplanadi and at the end of the north side near the intersection of Esplanadi and Mannerheimintie you can found Stockman´s department store, the Finland´s Harrods, the biggest, oldest and best store in town.

    Stockmann - Akateeminen Kirjakauppa: Books, books, books

    by Knutt Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are as much interested in books as I am you'll get all excited in the Academic Bookstore.
    Books in a number of different languages are sold there and the customer is always welcome to stop and read some passages.
    In case you need a break, there is a nice coffee place as well.

    What to buy: On four floors thousands of books are waiting to be read, just find the ones you like!

    What to pay: Books are in general quite expensive in Finland but sometimes you can get a good deal on English paperbacks or reduced hardcovers.

    Stockmann: Simply everything the tourist can dream of

    by Knutt Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stockmann is a traditional department store that sells pretty much everything from the one way bus ticket to the complete golf equipment.

    What to buy: If you want to spoil yourself a bit, how about buying one of the wonderful Aalto vases or some other pieces of the famous Finnish design?
    (And for those of us with a bit tighter budget there are a number of less expensive items to buy and just looking around does not cost anything at all!)

    Stockmann, Itäkeskus and other shops: Scandinavia's biggest shopping center

    by finlandia Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The downtown is full of good shops. The best and the biggest department store is named Stockmann.

    Scandinavia's largest shopping center called Itäkeskus with 240 shops and over 30 restaurants is outside the centre of Helsinki - but only 15 minutes by metro (subway) from the city centre. By car ten kilometers east of downtown along the Itäväylä highway.

  • Stockmann: Department Store Heaven

    by sabsi Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A huge department store where you can buy everything you need.

    What to buy: They have a big souvenir section here where you can buy the typical Suomi Souvenirs such as Lappish hats, sauna stuff or elks in all sizes. But they also have a huge glass section where you can buy Finnish glass design at its best! No way you are going home without a Alvar Aalto vase!

    What to pay: Unfortunately the Aalto glass is not very cheap but it's worth every cent spent I think!

    Stockmann: The ultimate compartment store in Finland

    by sinoda Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Seven floors of any immaginable goods money can buy.

    This store is fills up a single block entirely by itself on the best location Helsinki has to offer.

    And the store is still extending its localities.

    Well structured floors, still enigmatic to strangers. Friendly service and pleasant environment.

    What to buy: ANYTHING. Mark my words, anything. If you don't get it in Stockmann, you won't get it eslewhere in Finland either.

    Food, electronics, clothes, beverage, books, cosmetics, furniture and, and, and...

    What to pay: The range of prices is wide-spread. But you certainly can spend a fortune.
