Getting to know Tuija

The Tapiola department store is going through major renovation and improvements at the moment. Tuija Wänttinen is the store’s director.

Get to know Tuija and join us in creating the new Stockmann in Tapiola.

What is your Tapiola like?

“Stockmann is very familiar to me, because my own journey with Stockmann began as a sales person as early as 1983, after I had finished my matriculation examination. After that I have worked at Stockmann in over 10 different posts, e.g. Sales Manager of the Delicatessen, and Director of the Helsinki department store. The experience and encounters gained over the years will come in hand in creating the new department store.

We are making Tapiola into a department store of the future. First and foremost we wish to hear from the customers what they consider to be a first class shopping experience. Please join the discussion, and tell us what your ideal Stockmann in Tapiola would be like. You can take part in the conversation for example in the social media, where you can find us with the hashtag #uuttastockaa. All ideas, suggestions, and opinions are welcome. When the new department store will be completed in Spring 2017, we will celebrate the outcome of this co-operation with our customers!”
