Tokmanni     Press release     11 June 2020 at 3:50 p.m.


Tokmanni, Finland's leading general discount retailer, will reopen the former Perhemarket Pertti Heikkinen Ky store in Pudasjärvi as a remodelled store with an expanded selection under the Tokmanni name on Tuesday 16 June 2020 at 9:00 am. Prices are always exceptionally low at Tokmanni, but customers of the store in Pudasjärvi will also be treated to an extensive range of special opening offers from the opening morning throughout the opening week. Tokmanni acquired the store's business at the beginning of April.

The Tokmanni in Pudasjärvi is in a modern and practically new retail building in a prime location by the road between Oulu and Kuusamo near the centre of Pudasjärvi.

During the spring, we renewed and expanded the selection of products offered in the store. The former store specialised in tools but as usual for Tokmanni, the remodelled store will offer a very comprehensive selection of beauty, health and wellbeing, interior decoration, cleaning and seasonal products. It will also offer clothing, footwear and accessories, non-perishable foods, tools, and leisure, home electronics and entertainment products. There will also be a gardening department partly outdoors in the courtyard of the store, which will offer many kinds of flowers, other plants and soils, as well as other yard and garden products.

The store has also been remodelled in accordance with Tokmanni's latest store concept, which emphasises effortless and pleasant shopping experiences. For instance, it has wide aisles, informative signage and well-defined product areas. Like other Tokmanni stores, the store has a collection point for items purchased from Tokmanni's online store, and the “Soita ja nouda” (Call and Pick Up) ordering service developed for customers at higher risk from coronavirus.

Geographically, the Pudasjärvi stores is in an excellent location in relation to other Tokmanni stores. In addition to the new store, there are 14 Tokmanni chain stores in North Ostrobothnia.

“As a result of the remodelling, we can offer the people of Pudasjärvi and its visitors an even wider selection of shopping and a more pleasant shopping experience. It is great to be able to serve customers under the Tokmanni brand and with its assortments and services. We believe that customers will give Tokmanni a warm welcome,” says Mathias Kivikoski, Tokmanni’s Sales and Marketing Director.

The retail selling space of the store is approximately 1,900 square metres and special attention has been paid to energy efficiency. The property is heated with ground heat, part of the electricity is produced with the store’s own solar panels and the store is illuminated with energy-efficient LED lighting. The store will also have a recycling point for customers’ small waste electrical and electronic equipment.

The Pudasjärvi Tokmanni will employ around eight retail sector professionals. It will serve customers under the management of Store Manager Marja Heikkinen on weekdays from 9 am to 7 pm, on Saturdays from 9 am to 6 pm and on Sundays from 11 am to 6 pm. The address of the store is Pietarilantie 48, 93100 Pudasjärvi.

Tomi Timonen, the mayor of Pudasjärvi, and Mathias Kivikoski, Tokmanni’s Sales and Marketing Director will speak at the store opening.

Store will have both the familiar opening arrangements and special arrangements

Tokmanni is taking take the necessary steps to ensure a safe shopping experience. The safety of the customers and employees will be ensured at the Pudasjärvi Tokmanni by offering customers hand sanitizer during their visit, with reminders to keep a safe distance with posters and announcements and, if necessary, by limiting the number of customers allowed in the store at one time. On the opening day, customers will also be offered disposable gloves to wear while shopping. 

In addition to Tokmanni’s usual weekly store offers, the Pudasjärvi store will feature special opening offers from the opening morning to the end of the week. There will be no separate queue for Tokmanni’s famous surprise buckets. On this occasion, 2,500 free surprise buckets containing product gifts will be handed out to customers when they make purchases. This means customers will be able to go shopping and receive a free bucket not only in the morning but also later on during the opening day.
