Opening Night

May 8th Thursday Karhu opened its first concept store in its long and storied history.  The anticipation had been building for weeks (although some would say it has been 98 years in the making). Excited Karhu fans around the world were eager to see the brand’s first store, very appropriately, in Helsinki, Finland.

The shop is in a great bustling location in the centre of the Finnish capital. And it has been an attraction amongst local Karhu brand loyalists, and Finns in general.  “It’s great to finally have Karhu in Helsinki.” said Paula, a Finn with an appreciation for Karhu’s long history that’s woven deep into the culture of Finland.

The first reviews have been awesome.  “It’s a great looking store, just right” says Jordan Kinley, Karhu US national sales manager.  The shop showcases both the Originals footwear and apparel as well as performance shoes and gear.

Karhu, the quintessential Finnish Brand is home, and open in Helsinki. Come say hei!
