An ad for PUB
Paul U Bergstöm founded PUB in 1882, making it Stockholm’s oldest department store. Overlooking both Hötorget and Drottninggatan in central Stockholm, PUB is at the heart of the city’s largest selection of shopping, entertainment and culture.
PUB’s most famous employee is Greta Garbo who started working in the hat shop in 1922 before she was discovered and moved to Hollywood. In fact, her film debut was as a model in commercials for PUB.
Today PUB is established as the premier retailer for Swedish fashion and design, featuring brands such as Acne, Carin Wester, GANT, Tiger of Sweden, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, Whyred, Dagmar, Acne, Rodebjer, Hope and Minimarket.
