Supermarkets and grocery stores


You can buy groceries e.g. in the stores called Siwa, Valintatalo, K-market and S-markets. In the city centre you can buy groceries at K-market at the market square on Yliopistonkatu or at Sokos department store or S-markt at Kauppakatu. The price level is quite same in all supermarkets and grocery stores. You can find larger supermarkets and Lidl stores in Seppälä and Keljo shopping centres.

NB! Tab water is drinkable in Finland so you do not need to buy any drinking water from supermarkets.


In Finland all the ATMs where you can withdraw money are marked with a yellow OTTO sign. You should check already in your own country that your own bankcard functions abroad. Just in case also find out at your own bank which is the cooperative bank in Finland.

Post offices

The post office in Finland is called Posti. You can find post offices in the city centre at Vapaudenkatu 48-50 and in the Seppälä area at Ahjokatu 7. Stamps can be bought at R-kioski, book shops, Sokos department store and also in many smaller grocery stores.
