The new shopping district, Marknadsstråket, translates as Market Street and serves as a connecting retail gallery between the centre's food and grocery stores and the rest of the mall. A number of new brands have been introduced, focusing on food, service and home.
The tenants include: Hemmakväll (203 m2), Synsam (142 m2), BR-Leksaker (262 m2), Panduro Hobby (243 m2), Sia Glass (47 m2), Subway (185 m2), Direkt (41 m2), Mr Espresso (25 m2), Simit Sarayi (150 m2), Svea Exchange (80 m2), a deli for meat, fish and other delicacies (56 m2), and a food truck.
Since the acquisition of Skärholmen Centrum in 2015, Grosvenor has been actively working to strengthen the centre's food and restaurant range. Over the past year, two new grocery stores and a number of restaurants and cafés have opened and in 2018 the restaurant offering will be further developed.
As part of Grosvenor’s 'Living cities' philosophy, which aims at creating vibrant places that provide lasting positive impact on the environment, community and economy, the new changes will help to position Skärholmen as southern Stockholm's premier destination for food, fashion and dining.
Carl Strufve, Director, Nordics, Grosvenor Europe, comments: "We are very pleased with the new stores and marketplace at Skärholmen Centrum. The new additions help to refresh the offering of the centre, which fits perfectly with our vision to transform the centre of Skärholmen town into southern Stockholm’s main shopping and leisure destination. Through long-term development plans, we are preparing to create a new vibrant venue with an attractive range of restaurants, commerce, services and culture ensuring Skärholmen is the preferred place for people to live and spend their time.”
The new area of the shopping centre opened on 23 November and a food festival was held 25 November to celebrate the launch, which saw five well-known chefs - Johan Backeus, Jimmi Eriksson, Frida Leijon, Filip Poon and Cajsa Johansson - cook together with the public.
