Changes in the town centre: 'It's exciting to introduce different cultures'
In what used to be an inner courtyard you can enjoy sushi at the new Sushi Maki Bar and Restaurant. At Södertorg a couple from Iceland have started the Indian curry and tandoori restaurant Shalimar. In Galleri Boulevard Jafar Khafab has opened Sweety Café where he sells baklava and Arabic ice-cream.
”It's exciting that we are introducing different cultures”, says Charlotte Svärd, executive manager at Kristianstad City.
In addition, a new tailor's, Tailor skrädderi, has moved into Västra Storgatan beside Symaskinshuset. There have been a tailor's and a shoemaker's in Västra Vallgatan and Döbelnsgatan for some time.
– The town centre is becoming more of a meeting-place and offers more services. It's part of a community that re-uses. You can do more errands in the centre. It won't be a hundred per cent shopping, you will be able to have a haircut, get your shoes mended, have lunch or a coffee, says Charlotte Svärd.
It was recently settled that Specsavers are to move into H&M's former premises in Cardellsgatan.
