The newly extended Vinterbro shopping center, south east of Oslo, re opened in June 2013. Its clean design, 85 retailers, and a new façade that lets in natural light are just some of the features that made the revamped shopping center a success.
The Vinterbro shopping center has been redesigned to put the spotlight on its retailers, with all extensions carried out by Klépierre and its partners strivinge to achieve the highest level of quality. The Farmandstredet center in Tønsberg regained its original character after renovations were completed. This lively shopping center in the heart of town has become a popular place to meet and socialize, with cafés, shops and services attracting customers and boosting retail figures.
