Background: Shopping in Stockholm has been evolving in recent years in both the Bohemian district of Södermalm and the more upscale Östermalm. On Södermalm, the changes have been driven primarily by the development of the area around Skånegatan, known as SoFo, and Götgatan. On Östermalm, the development has been led by Stureplan and the district now called Biblioteksstan. Both districts are now further expanding.
