A shop for almost everything
Grandpa is not just a hip fashion store. Nor is it a bookstore or houseware shop. Well, they do sell all these things, but they’ve managed to provide a different kind of shopping by giving you the chance to go home with a piece of the Scandinavian life in a shopping bag.
A few weekends ago, we were wandering around in the hipster neighborhood of SoFo—ridiculous acronym for South of Folkungagatan— and ended up doing some shopping in a store that’s named after your grandpa (yeah, it’s called Grandpa). It’s super hipster and somewhat the grownup version of Urban Outfitters, selling high-quality products that have a purpose and that you’ll actually use.
So when you’ve stumbled into this boutique, you’ll find a nice range of fashion for both men and women. Even though everything isn’t from Scandinavian designers, you can be sure to find the latest trends that rule the north of Europe. The staff is super helpful and knowledgeable so don’t hesitate to ask them for help if you’re looking for a certain something. When you’re done browsing through the racks, you should check out the selection of homewares, posters, and all the other cool stuff they have to offer.
The brand is never more important than the productgrandpastore.com
