The retail trade has a tough time in central Malmo – in addition to a sharp competition from external shopping centers a redrawn busline has changed the customer flows.
Now Åhlens shuts down one of its department stores in central Malmö.
It’s Åhlens on Södra Förstadsgatan by the Triangeln mall who’s lost the flow from buslines after the establishment of the new city tunnel. Several stores have been unhappy with the development, recently 7-Eleven chose to close.
Åhlens confirms to Sydsvenskan that the department should be closed, but do not want to say more
Åhlens will not disappear entirely from central Malmö as they also have a shop on Södergatan.
