There are approximately 1.4 million people in the metropolitan area of Helsinki. Yet, the Stockmann department store claims to have 17 million customers. That may begin to explain the retailer’s importance not only in Finland but also in the neighboring Nordic countries. This store, which was built in the Kluuvi neighborhood in 1930, has over a half million square feet of space filled with many premiere brands. If you can’t find what you are looking for at Stockmann, then you probably don’t need it.
