Shooping question for folks from Sweden

are there malls in sweden , specifically in karlstad?


Country: Sweden


Bergvik, to the east of Karlstad centre, quite close to Skutberget and Bomstad Campings was originally the place for OBS, a part of the cooperative chain "Konsum". OBS can be found all over the country now and is always a huge place with all kinds of products, from food to lawn-mowers.

Today it is a huge mall with around 15-20 different stores, like OBS, Expert (home electonics), Intersport and Stadium (sports clothes and stuff), Werner & Werner (kitchen stuff and appliances), Fýrjestad BK support shop (replicas and such of Fýrjestad Elite League hockey club), Systembolaget (alcohol) and lots and lots of clothes stores and other stuff.
Dear Lucy,

There a replenty of malls, surely close to the bigger cities, but also the rural communities have malls equally spread over the country. I never stopped in Karlstad itself, I most times passed it. But I know that not far from the city, about 4 kilometers, close to the highway (E18), in the southeast direction, close to the immense and beautiful lake Vänern, there is a shopping mall called Bergvik Köpcenter and you find a lush number of shops, all you need!
