Kaubamaja – Estonia’s department store.

 

Kaubamaja is one of the only two department store chains in Estonia. Here you will find just about anything. Over the last few years, the store has undergone some renovations, including improvements to its children’s department and women’s sections, and most recently, menswear section. Kaubamaja is connected to Viru Keskus through an overpass that leads to additional departments like the cosmetics department on the ground floor; ladies wear on the second floor, and a gourmet grocery store in the basement level. This department store sells brand name designer fashions, and stocks top name appliances and cosmetics.

Kaubamaja was founded in 1960 as a government enterprise. Once Estonia regained its independence, it was transformed into a public limited company. Kaubamaja has alocationinTallinnandinTartu..

Just this year, Kaubamaja in Tallinn renovated their men’s depart- ment. The department, which stretches over two floors, brought in some new brands to add to their already extensive line of men’s wear. New brands include: JOOP!, Karl Lagerfeld, and Baldessarini. On the second floor, you will find men’s wear, including outerwear. Move one floor up, and there you will find shoes, accessories, and formalwear.
