null

The essential guide for retail investors has just been updated for 2019/2020. It gives anyone interested in retail opportunities in Stockholm and Sweden the facts, figures and information needed when evaluating an entry into the most dynamic market of the Nordics.

As one of Europe’s fastest expanding urban centers, Stockholm is attracting talent from around the globe, drawn to the professional opportunities and high quality of life that Stockholm offers. Stockholm's cosmopolitan atmosphere and entrepreneurial climate make for an affluent and diverse audience, and an exciting market opportunity for brands in all retail areas.

”Our first-rate infrastructure, consistent high economic growth and wealth of human capital places Stockholm amongst the world’s top future-ready economies. We’re a popular choice for regional headquarters of multinational companies. Simply put, Stockholm offers high purchasing power and an attractive business environment,” says Anna Gissler, CEO of Invest Stockholm.

Stockholm’s commitment to democracy, diversity and sustainability as core social values has given it a distinctly international appeal, attracting considerable interest from international companies in recent years.

”The Stockholm retail market is an increasingly attractive market for expansion. Several new international brands have established their Scandinavian flagship store in Stockholm recently, for example Victoria’s Secret and Uniqlo. Here, they can test new concepts, as Swedes are curious trendsetters, driven by progressive values and ideas,” says Karin Strassburg, Business Development Manager at Invest Stockholm.

As Stockholm’s population increases, so do opportunities for international retail brands. Expanding retail sales and high population growth rates have generated considerable investment in new retail space developments and expansions of shopping centers and city districts, making Stockholm an easy entry point into the Swedish market.
