"One thing I noticed about..." Stockholm Local Custom Tip by SheDragon

Stockholm Local Customs: 171 reviews and 163 photos

One thing I noticed about Sweden is that it is very 'do it yourself.' In a grocery store in the States, for instance, the people working there will do almost everything but pay your bill. In Sweden, you do everything, including pay for the bags you put your purchases in! Clerks in stores are not always asking you if you need help, not even if you are standing there with a 'Help me!' look on your face. If you want something, ask for it, or learn to do without.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
