KAVAT is growing with Wallenstam

Report this content

Wallenstam has the pleasure to welcome Kavat to larger premises in Gothenburg in March. They will almost double its retail space when they move to Korsgatan 6.

“We have a rock-solid belief in the inner city, are passionate about the development that we are creating together with our tenants and we love the beautiful blocks in the heart of Gothenburg. In addition, we are of course really proud and happy to provide our tenants with the right conditions to continue to develop with us,” says Anders Forsling Chief Account Manager.

At Korsgatan 6, Kavat is increasing its presence with a larger store of 109 square meters in total, which is opening before the beginning of spring. Kavat was established in 1945 by Ragnar Karlsson. Today, the fourth generation works in the family business. The shoes are manufactured at Kavat’s own shoe factory and they strongly believe in selling shoes with a clear origin.

“Korsgatan is centrally located and since we opened in 2014 it has become an important thoroughfare in the change that we see is happening in Gothenburg. This will become even clearer when the pandemic has blown over. We strongly believe in connecting online sales with the physical store and this will also be the starting shot for an omni-solution, while we can demonstrate our circular economy concepts which are an important part of our brand. There are also plans for the new store to accommodate a small shoe repair shop,” says Magnus Ericson, CEO of Kavat.
