Atrium Ljungberg: Sabis chooses Sickla for its new grocery store

Atrium Ljungberg has signed a lease agreement for more than 1,700 m[2] with Sabis, which will expand this spring and open a new grocery store inside the Sickla Galleria mall. The store is part of Sabis’ partnership with Axfood and will be called “Hemköp Sickla”.

Sabis is a Stockholm-based family business that was founded in 1874. It now has 20 restaurants, ten cafes, three hotels and five grocery stores, including Sabis Fältöversten and four Hemköpsbutiker stores. Its new store in Sickla will be at the western entrance to the mall, next to Curanten, the new healthcare building, and Sickla station, which has access to the city’s cross-rail link (Tvärbanan), to the Saltsjöbanan line and bus services. . Sickla Galleria has expanded over the past two years, with several new stores opening last fall, including Normal and Lagerhaus, as well as a 3,000m XXL store2. This new grocery store is expected to open in September.

“We are so happy to open this new store. Sickla is such an exciting place, with so many growth projects and a target group that demands the best quality and service. We are going to create a store of 1,700 m2which will be filled with the joy of good inspiring ideas and delicious cooked meals”, says Madeleine Brehmer, CEO of Sabis. “With Hemköps’ solid range and Sabis’ personal touch, this store is a very tempting option for foodies and discerning customers,” concludes Madeleine Brehmer.

Sickla is growing and expanding rapidly, with new housing and workplaces. In the fall, Sickla has expanded its total range of options for residents, workers, and visitors, and demand is strong to set up businesses there. Businesses that have opened there recently include IKEA, Alba Golf and Centurion Padel, as well as several restaurants. Curanten, the healthcare building, is already well established, while in summer the new Clarion Collection Hotel Tapetfabriken opened on Marcusplatsen with 240 rooms. There are plans for a total of 7,000 new workplaces and 1,500 housing units in Sickla. Development work will continue until 2030, when the extension of the metro’s blue line will be completed.

“Opening such a great grocery store inside the mall will further strengthen Sickla’s offering. Sickla is currently going through a phase of expansion, with the construction of housing and offices, which means that there is a growing need for services. We chose Sabis because they are a very smart company in the Stockholm durable consumer goods market. A strong family business with a clear entrepreneurial spirit is a perfect complement to the combination we want to offer,” says Annica Ånäs, CEO of Atrium Ljungberg.

The lease agreement with Sabis is known as the “green lease agreement”. It is at this time that the lessor and the lessee agree on joint measures to maintain or improve the environmental performance of the premises.
