The trend of replacing full categories in department stores with specialist chains goes on.
Now Sokos Wiklund in Turku opens up for furniture chain Vepsäläinen with Habitat on its 3rd floor at the end of the year – following Tokmanni in October.
”Vepsäläinen Wiklund complements the service offering and we believe that with our new partner will Wiklund become a more attractive and interesting place for shopping,” says Sokos department stores and Chain Director Janne Reunanen at Turun Osuuskaupasta.
There are already several concepts under Sokos Wiklund’s roof – mainly from the S-Group’s portfolio. In addition, Tokmanni opens on the 2nd floor in October.
Vepsäläinen Sales director Mikko Vuorela says the location was very attractive so it was a quick decision.
”We get the new store ready yet for the Christmas market, and we will in addition to Vepsäläinen’s familiar brand products also offer the Habitat brand with its the beautiful and practical interior products,” says Mikko Vuorela.
