    Celebrating its 160th anniversary our biggest and most famous department store is now on a slightly ascending curve in profitability as the pandemy eases. The effort to target brand conscious middle class is paying off and customers are returning to the store which has several new cafeterias offering refreshments while shopping. Outsourcing the traditional food market has helped to balance the economy too.

    A steady flow of customers still fills the huge shopping center as the location is so central, there is no visible loss of retailers. The slight diminution in popularity happened already some years ago when the metro extension to Matinkylä eliminated most bus connections underground. The biggest tenant Japanese Muji filling a whole floor wants to integrate with the Finnish society adding to its food selection even a pick up service for locally grown food.

    Spring light flows down the high atrium of the mall which you can also descend by an elegant spiral staircase. Two culinary newcomers have just opened for those who crave for something sweet. The healthier is Finnish Steelcut situated in the middle of the entrance lobby and serving special oatporridge with fruits, nuts and berries. Japanese Momochi has two products, brightly glazed doughnuts and sticky ice cream balls both made on the premises. The first small shopping complex was established at this busy crossroads already in 1952. When the new one on several levels was opened in 1985 Kimmo Kaivanto's elegant sculpture fountain Nereidi was on a prime location in front of a restaurant, now the 2nd floor corner is quite abandonded.

    The biggest shopping mall in the eastern part of town has remained quite the same over the troubled times as the customers are locals not tourists. Nowadays it offers maybe even better shopping opportunities than the city center under one roof. There is a huge movie theater, many cafeterias and restaurants and a metro station with bus connections futher on. The old shopping centre beside it has become an equally popular ethnic food area with big Turkish supermarkets.

    When the huge shopping center at Pasila railway station opened just before the pandemy the marketing slogan stated that "the city center has moved here". The seemingly optimistic prophecy has proved right as the former main shopping street Aleksi in downtown Helsinki is now full of empty spaces. For those commuting to the suburbs Tripla is an obvious place to shop and spend time in the numerous restaurants and cafes.

    Many retailers have changed recently at the exclusive shopping center next to hotel Kämp but the new ones seem ready for customers. The shoe stores on the ground floor have made room for minimalistic Scandinavian furniture and upstairs multitalented Klaus Haapaniemi has moved to an own corner with magic prints in silk and cotton made in Europe. The Museum of Photography has changing exhibitions in the basement, currently the ashtonishing pictures by Vivian Maier found only after her death.

    For a first-timer, it was quite hard to find out what is where.

    There were plenty of shops but very few customers (on Saturday afternoon).

    I wonder how long this can be profitable while new shopping centers are constantly rising.

    Visited on a Tuesday morning and I felt I was the only one there (except the staff). I have never been the only person in the foodcourt before!

    Today there was Christmas opening celebration. Absolutely fantastic atmosphere, lots of people and great shopping. But there are very few places to eat. So the queues are always long.

    When the Ruoholahti area was built over the site of old lumberyards in 1990 it lacked long good shopping options, now the Jätkäsaari neighbourhood still partly under construction has brought many clients to the mall. As the metroline was continued to Lauttasaari and Espoo the customer potential has also grown to the west. The Danish furniture store Jysk and Tokmanni all purpose budget store are bigger tenants, the supermarket downstairs is open 24 hours a day. A hardware store, smaller shops and restaurants fill the ground floor.

    Kauppakeskus Kaari is a shopping center in Kannelmäki, Northern Helsinki. It is located near the busy Ring I highway.

    The mall offers more than 80 stores including grocery stores, chain stores, specialty stores, and a restaurant world.

    For a first-timer, it was a little confusing that the escalators went just upwards.

    The Moomin characters and their commercial use are tightly controlled by Tove's brothers descendants so you will find only originals in this small shop. Famous Finnish brands are carefully selected for co-operation, Finlayson for towels and sheets, Iittala makes the popular mugs and even Fiskars scissors have Moomin printed on them. The shops selection includes small and bigger objects, practical or just funny in all price categories.

    Easton Helsinki was opened in October 2017. It offers over 30 shops, services, and restaurants. The biggest one is K-Citymarket.

    We noticed that there were many empty business premises. The older Itis had more to offer for us.

    The small shopping center at the end station of the metroline in Vuosaari has acquired new tenants during the past hard times. Three different charities have outlets here, Fida, Uff and latest I care by the Salvation Army. Lidl is thriving too as the most economic supermarket on the block. Even new cafeterias have opened up where others vacated the premises.

    Finns are loyal to their chosen supermarket chain even though its prices might be higher, so it is no wonder to see two facing each other in the small new Laajasalo mall. The old building was knocked down to make room for this non descript box as apartment buildings are rising around it. It is common in malls to reserve some space in the corridors for changing free enterprise, here a blind local man sells handmade baskets from rattan he specially orders from Indonesia to get the highest quality for his elaborate work.
