The Världsbutiken is a chain of stores set up for the purposes of selling handcrafted products from the developing world at fair prices to create a more equitable life for people in those countries. Thus you are likely to find African woodwork, Latin American textiles and food products from all over the globe. The prices are not low, but are quite reasonable for Sweden, and many people shop here for the unique products and the knowledge that their purchases are doing some good.
Stortorget is the original core of the old city. Once the market square for the medieval population, it's now one of the most upscale addresses in the city and houses shops, restaurants and is very close to several of the city's signature landmarks. Visitors staying on or near Stortorget are guaranteed a front row seat to the civic life and attractions of Malmö.
Environmentally-conscious shoppers will be more than delighted to visit Fiber Fin. This fashion boutique is an organic, fair trade producer of ecological clothing. Fiber Fin features a broad range of clothing for all ages and sizes. You can also buy fabrics, towels, bed linen and even cute footwear. All of their products are environmentally labeled and most are fair-trade. They even sell bags made of eco-friendly products and secondhand clothing.
This area is one of the few remaining districts of old Malmö, preserved largely as it was in ages past. The streets are narrow and the buildings are aged and authentically Swedish. There are several shops and boutiques and these cater to both tourists and locals. This area is a great place to stop in for souvenirs and photographs. The district begins just west of Lilla Torg off of Stortorget and runs to the Slottsparken.
This small local chain, headquartered at this location in the center of Malmö, specializes in all things a child needs. They carry mostly clothing, but also have a selection of inventive and crowd-pleasing toys, gadgets and gifts. Scandinavians are known for their love of children, and the products of their culture have given us such childhood wonders as Pippi Longstocking and Lego. You can see why at shops like this.
The Systembolaget chain of state-run liquor stores is an essential part of life in the country. Any beverage containing more than 3.5% alcohol (i.e. any beer or cider that's not ultra-light, wine, whiskey, vodka-in fact, any kind of hard liquor) must either be purchased from a business with a special liquor license (i.e. a bar, club or restaurant) or from one of these shops (you can order online too, but obviously that takes some time and is more intended as a service for Sweden's far-flung hinterlands). Prices are high (it's a monopoly after all), so shoppers intending to stock up for more than just a single party or evening's relaxation would do well to stock up on the lower priced bulk purchases or see what's on special.
This outlet shop close to Lund is one of the favored places for students (and others) on a budget to pick up quality goods. It offers quality goods at surprising prices, and it's more than possible to get yourself a whole new wardrobe and outfit your home after an afternoon's shopping here.
This stylish and eclectic Malmo boutique offers men's and women's apparel and accessories featuring trendy and funky designs. Find stylish outfits that are environmentally friendly. Shoppers will be happy to know that the boutique is totally committed to the environment and only has organic and sustainable products on its racks. The boutique also has a great selection of shoes.
Jysk is a Danish chain of homeware and department stores. There is much here for the kitchen, garden, living room and many other uses. Like many Danish products, the quality is impeccable, but unlike most such products the prices are very reasonable, and many find the products offered by Jysk superior to those at IKEA for a lower price.
This shopping center is one of the largest in southern Sweden, and contains everything from large department stores to tiny boutiques. There is a grocery store, several clothing stores, electronics shops and mobile phones providers- in short, there is something for everyone and a store for every need in the complex.
IKEA has grown into a worldwide brand of do-it-yourself superstores, and anyone who has visited one knows what to expect here; it is in some ways a museum of Swedish life within Sweden itself! Nevertheless a trip to IKEA can be a fun and cheap way to meet your needs if you find yourself in need of cheap but durable furniture, home goods, or stuff for the garden, kitchen or bath.
This little boutique is one of the favorite spots for the girls of Lund to shop. The designs are stylish and original and the prices, while fitting for hand-made work, are reasonable.
