Sokos: "The other department store" Kuopio Shopping Tip by nomadig

Kuopio Shopping: 12 reviews and 11 photos

Sokos department store is located adjacent to the market square, just next to the department store of Kuopio's own people, Carlson's. The ground floor makes you think that the store is really miniscule, but the second floor expands the space greatly.

Kuopio's Sokos is part of Sokos chain that covers all major cities in Finland (except Oulu -- a fact that I find somewhat puzzling). Their selection is geared heavily towards the middle class, so don't expect any haute couture brands. Sokos is quite good at tableware, carrying Iittala and other Finnish brands.
