Strömstad has been a popular shopping town for many years, mainly due to its proximity to the Norwegian border. To meet the constantly growing demand many large stores and malls have been built lately. For example, Strömstad has two liquor stores, enormous tobacco and sweets stores at Svinesund, a large number of megamarkets and Scandinavia´s largets mall in Nordby. Quite impressive for a town with about 12 000 inhabitants! Strömstad has actually been rated as Sweden´s fourth biggest shopping town, and as it that wasn´t enough - in Norway it holds third place!
