    Expat stores

    by Sjalen Written Jul 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are times when a long time traveller or expat feels the need for some home comforts. The Americans amongst you the go to Gray's in the Old Town at the crossing of Storkyrkobrinken and Västerlånggatan, whilst the Brits can go to the British store in Söderhallarna at Medborgarplatsen.

    Shop till you Drop

    by bottleofdoom Updated Sep 7, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are many good record & clothing stores. It can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you live in a small town like myself! I'll just talk about
    the best of the crop. Unfortunately, the first day we were there turned out to be a Swedish holiday & all the stores were closed! But we figured out where everything was & how to get there. So we spent most of the day riding the train & getting aquainted with the city.

    Fondest memory: Don in Gamla Stan. Gamla Stan means 'old town' & this is where Stockholm
    originated back in the 12th Century.

    IKEA is not open yet...

    Fondest memory: I will never forget how much fun we had shopping at the Quality Outlet outside of Stockholm in Barkaby. Very cheap and great shops!! The perfect thing to do on a rainy day (and we had a lot of rainy days in Stockholm unfortunately)!

    Photo of my Best Friend!

    Favorite thing: TAX-FREE. Available for non EU citizens. Your are entitled to a refund of 15-18% when you leave the European Union territory. Ask for your receipt in the shop when you make your purchase. For more information look for the Tax-Free guide, found in shops and at the Sweden House.

    Fondest memory: To see the people take care of they dogs!! (go for walks and give them alot of attention. In South Africa you see alot of animals dead in the streets, running over by cars, taxi's and busses, cause they owners don't keep them inside the yard, and that is sad!

    The world of electronics

    by Sharrie Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: The world of electronics, Swedish style! I didn't go in to explore as I was rushing to book my cruise ticket from Stockholm to Helsinki. The Silja city office is about 8 mins walk from here at the east end of Kungsgatan (& Birger Jarlsgatan, amazing how foreign all these streets sound to me :-)) near to Sturegallerian. Since this is the beginning of my 20 days trip, I know I can't afford to lug around souvenirs on my 1st stop! So, off I went just "snapping" up pix of the city. It's great fun for me.

    by LysDor Written Sep 12, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: DUCK PRESS





    When I visited Stockholm in the early 80s' I found in one of the big department store NK or Åhlens this strange looking device in the kitchenware section!

    Believe it or not (you better do) this is a duck press which costs $1400!

    And this is not a joke, the machine was (and maybe still is) on sale.

    It is used to press the juice out of ducks' bones to make a very refined soup.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: SHOPPING



    Shop at NK or Åhlens and other small boutiques and shoe retails at Norrmalm: Hamngatan - Norrlandsgatan - Kungsgatan and Drottninggatan.

    I liked to go to Hötorgshallen at
    Hötorget which is an indoor market with a strong international flavor. Lots of exotic products from all corners of the world are housed within its walls.

    I used to buy my sliced

    turkey-breast here!

    ...and when you are done go have a nice coffee at the GRAND HOTEL afterwards.

    Record Stores

    Favorite thing: This is me outside the closed record store, Frizzle. Mellotronen is another record
    store right next to it & they are on Gamla Stan. Address: 16-14 Kakbrinken.
    I wanted very much to purchase the new Backyard Babies record. The absolute best record store we went to was SOUND POLLUTION in Gamla Stan.
    Address: Stora Nygatan 18

    Favorite thing: Not spent too many Kronor.
    If you like beer then try the 'happy hours' in bars as it's way cheaper.If the Hennes & Mauritz sales are on then BUY!BUY!BUY! as you can find some real bargains.

    Fondest memory: Having a gallery on Södermalm back in 1985.
    Renting the Van der Nootska Palace for my birtday.
    Staying out on Runmarö Island one Summer.
    Organising the first wharehouse parties in an old car factory out at Nacka in 1988.

    Drottninggatan, the shopping street!

    by HyperFredde Written Aug 12, 2004
    Drottninggatan

    Favorite thing: Drottninggatan does not mean "the shopping street" (it means "Queen street"), but this is a very long street where you can shop 'til you drop - and you will. Sweden is SO expensive!
