    Magasinet: Factory outlet - 2nd sorting porcellain

    by Saagar Updated Mar 6, 2005
    Porsgrund's factory outlet

    This is the largest factory outlet of Porsgrund Porcellain Factory. They carry most of their current production series of tableware, including glasses here, but in 2nd sorting quality. But you have to really look hard on the finishing to find any blemishes on most of the stuff for sale. The price may be 20-80% lower than the top quality stuff. Lots of attractive things in here.

    Opening hrs:
    Mon-Fri: 09-16 (summer 9-18)
    Thu : 09-18
    Sat: 09-13 (summer 9-15)
    Sun: summer only: 13-17

    What to buy: Dinner sets, glass sets, serving plates, glasses, special artistic vases etc.

    What to pay: 30-40% below catalogue price, sometimes lower. Weekly and seasonal campaigns.

    Kremmerhuset: Factory outlet - cheap porcellain

    by Saagar Updated Mar 1, 2005
    Kremmerhuset

    Located next to Glasshjørnet, Kremmerhuset is the factory outlet of Porsgrund's out of production stuff, industrial size kitchen wares and supplementary production for old (but still popular) series of tableware.
    Some of the things here are seriously cheap.

    Thu : 09-18
    Sat: 09-13 (summer 9-15)

    What to buy: Tableware - cups, plates etc. Very nice Christmas plate sets, when I was here. Some nice stuff. The finer stuff can easily pass for fine gifts.

    What to pay: From NOK 40 up per dinner plate

    Downtown: Shopping malls of Porsgrunn

    by Saagar Updated Mar 1, 2005
    Downtown

    Ooouchhh!
    This isn't my idea of holiday.
    And a terrible name for a Telemark (you know, sweaters, skiing and all that) shopping center.
    If you have to, this is the place to do your shopping quick and dirty in Porsgrunn. 70 shops located in two neighbouring malls. But do not forget the city centre shops, either.

    What to buy: Those you should buy in Porsgrunn things you wouldn't get here, anyway.
    But generic stuff of all kinds you can get here.
    Noted some good stuf for deep sea fishing in a sports goods store, otherwise, just the regular run of the mill, and a fairly large supermarket.
