Kristianstad consolidated its position further as a shopping destination when the second phase of Galleria Boulevard opened at 10 am today. This is something that has been awaited by both merchants and visitors to the city. The first phase of the new galleria opened in October 2013, with more than fifteen stores, including several shops that were entirely new to Kristianstad. In phase two an additional twenty new shops and several restaurants and cafes were added.
The cinema Kosmorama with its new foyer is the base of the restaurant and entertainment area and is the second-phase hallmark. Evening Open restaurants and cafes with outdoor seating areas will also help to make the center more active and pleasant to be in.
A generous and comfortable seating area in the bright New Square and a large family lounge contributes to make Galleria Boulevard the obvious new venue in Kristianstad. In conjunction with the opening new extended opening hours were introduced and together with the city’s trade-association a joint gift card for Galleria Boulevard and several of downtown’ stores were launched
