“Never thought about reviewing a department store!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

As the title suggests people really do rate a department store so I will add my thoughts too.
Basically we love this place. Despite some saying it is expensive in our experience we find it has something for most pockets.
Yes if you want to buy a 1000 Euro suit or coat you can do so. But by the same token you can buy a 5.99 Euro T-shirt.
Also as one other reviewer has mentioned it is great place to get a value for money bite to eat.
We regularly get a delicious sandwich or salad from here and an equally delicious cake a few beers from the Alko situated in the basement and enjoy our food in the park if it is warm in summer or in the hotel room if it is cold in winter.
Give the place a go.

“Best department store in Finland”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Everything is relative. Compared to major malls or Dep't stores in eg the US this is naturally not in the absolute top, but not far from it either. Seeing from an Finnish perspective only, this is THE flagship dep't store. Nice assortment if you like quality brands (mostly international) and good service (which you cant't expect to get in a Finnish dep't store).

If you happen to visit during the "Crazy Days" (Hullut Päivät/Galna Dagarna) which they have a couple of times per year, you should expect HUGE rush and chaos as the store(s) are packed. And the best offers/pieces/examples goes first, so be there in time. Unfortunately during these days there are nowadays more and more visitors from the neighbouring countries in the East, and their behaviour is not from this world - very shameless and "we own the world-ish".

“Coming from NYC, its just another store!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

This store is the Macys in Helsinkie. Huge but smaller than Macys limited style options and pricey. Compare to NYC this is nothing. But they have best gelato by the entrance better than one I had in Italy.

“one of the best shopping centers I've ever been to!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This shopping center is just huge! You can buy there everything you wish (perfumes, clothes, items for home, food, Finnish souvenirs and much much more!). There are also a lot of season sales. You can catch really good deals there! The restaurants and grocery stores that are located in Stockmann are pretty expensive (compared to other groceries in Helsinki).

“Just a very large department store”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

It's like your local department store. True, it is very big, has almost everything and every brand, but is still a taste instead of the whole meal.
