Shopping in Lillehammer
Lillehammer's commercial areas, at least those interesting for visitors are centered on two areas: The main area, well-known because of the Lillehammer Olympic, is the center of Lillehammer itself, with the pedestrian areas and adjacent side roads, back yards, parallel roads etc. The Storgata pedestrian street is the focal place.
The centre of Lillehammer
With its award-winning pedestrian street Storgata at its hub - is famous around the world. Charming and historically important buildings serve as the backdrop for a modern and bustling shopping environment with a number of specialist shops and an excellent range of products to choose from.
Opening hours monday - saturday 09 - 18. Some food store are open until 23
Strandtorget Shopping centre
The other site is Strandtorget shopping plaza down by the river, benefitting from an old paper factory site for development sprawl, and the adjacent E6 highway and proximity to Lillehammer as high turn-over customer base. There is a development debate over whether to limit Strandtorget's activities in order not to depopulate the town centre. Interestingly, the Storgata shops tend to start affilate shops and outlets at Strandtorget. Given the seasonally adverse weather, a large indoor-shopping mall has proven successful.
