Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

Täby Centrum in 1976 – With Kitschy Shopping Music

Written by Chris Alm • November 10th, 2006

This is a cut from a educational promotion film that explains some aspects on why Täby Centrum was built. The film is in Swedish and narrated by the architect of the center who explains some particulars about it. If you look closely you will see the Domus sign in the background on the second floor of the mall. Domus was one of the typical anchor type stores at Swedish malls during the 60s and 70s.

Most of the Domus stores are gone today or have been renamed Coop, which is the new brand for the KF owned stores. Täby Centrum is now the largest indoor mall in Sweden and one of the largest in Europe. It opened september 26, 1968 and had major expansions made in 1991. There are now plans to make it even bigger.

If you like the “happy-go-lucky” type of background music for the video, be sure to download my custom made compilation “Retro Shopping Volume 1 – Music to buy toasters by“.
