Hello My Lovely Readers,
I am very glad and excited about the opening of the new mall in Solna Station in Stockholm just near the Friends Arena. Yes! Long awaited ‘Mall of Scandinavia’ 🙂
Check details here in this link
On the opening day almost all the people from the city went to visit the mall ( actually it was not all the people but it seemed so). I never saw such a big gathering in Stockholm before. The mall opened on 12th November 2015 at 8.30pm. On the opening night when I arrived it was already closed. It was supposed to open at 8.30 in the evening till 12.00 at night. By the time I arrived there it was around 9.30 pm and was already closed. As there were too many people which was difficult to control by the management. Mall was closed just after an hour of opening. There was an announcement that they will be opening again from 10.30 pm but that never happened again that day. People became crazy and they started fighting with guards and I could watch all these scenes from the roof top reflection. Some of my friends who were lucky enough to come early got inside but could not shop due to too much gathering. It was chilling cold outside and people were waiting just for the entry to the biggest mall. Then I could understand that how crazy would Swedish people go if they ever visit Bangladesh 🙂 For me that kind of gathering is very normal which I have always experienced from childhood but it was definitely something totally new for Swedish people. I also realized that people all over the world are attracted to offers and discounts.
The next day I could visit the mall. I was super excited to see how it looks inside and check if I get anything new. This is really one of the best place for shopping as you get to check all the brands together which are available in Sweden. Shopping becomes very easy and finding the shops are also easy as they have information center and maps.
I found two new brands for cosmetics which are my favorites but it was not here in Sweden before. I am super happy about that. One of them is INGLOT and the other is KIKO Cosmetics. Inglot is a worldwide well known brand which originally comes from Poland and Kiko is an Italian brand. Both of these brands have good quality cosmetics with wide range of color collection. The amazing thing is they are really affordable. There are more new shops and brands but I specially noticed these cosmetic part. There are movie theaters and many restaurants which are all amazing and makes enough confusion and complication to choose one 😉
On the opening weekend there were varieties of discounts and gifts with every purchase and still some shops are providing offers. I think till Christmas different offers will be available.
You can register to their ‘Lojalitetskort’ which is there membership card. This is really important to be registered to get their amazing offers from different shops. It is easy to download the application by writing ‘ Mall of Scandinavia’ and download it from play store from your android device. You have to register there to get your membership card in your mobile phone.
Hope you do a lot of shopping and share you feelings by commenting here.
