Kvadrat is one of the largest shopping centres in Norway, both in terms of turnover and area. There are 170 shops in various industries, of which clothing/shoes / fashion is the largest single industry with around 60 stores. The centre was first opened in April 1984 and has been rebuilt and modernised several times.
The perfect activity for a day
Kvadrat is a popular shopping centre in Sandnes with several great offers. Feel free to take the entire day here if the holiday weather is not on your side for all the outdoor activities you were planning. Start the day with a good café breakfast at one of Kvadrat's many cafés, then trawl the shops until you find your favourites. You can even treat yourself to some self-care; how about a haircut, visit a barbershop, getting some skin care, nail care or getting makeup tips. For the very youngest, it is probably popular to take the driving license with "Kvadratbilen" (the Kvadrat car) (NOK 10 per hour).
Food and beverages at Kvadrat
After shopping and self-care, it may be time for lunch? The centre has most types of food on offer - everything from Mexican, Japanese, Italian, Indian, and Asian fusion to traditional Norwegian food. If the sun is shining, several of the eateries have outdoor seating in the summer. A little more action for the children awaits after lunch, where they can test out the Glo-kart track at Fun Center Kvadrat, or they can go outside and play in the playground outside entrance C.
