Quick question- where do I find a wheeled suitcase

In Uppsala?

I just need a small wheeled thing, good for perhaps 4 outfits, 2 pairs of shoes, a coat and a washbag. And a hairdryer.

Where in Uppsala can I find this? Would a larger supermarket like Coop at Bolanderna have one? Anyone seen one anywhere?

Cheers.

Probably any large shop will have something. But to get an idea before you buy.

Find their Uppsala shop at http://www.clasohlson.se/About/StoreDetail.aspx?id=10005708

Their small cheap cabin baggage size is just 199 kr.

Get a job as a baggage-handler at Bromma Airport and simply help yourself to any one of the large amount of wheeled suitcases that pass through their each day. Two people I know have recently had baggage go missing when flying in and out of Bromma, one of them also had his coat stolen even though it was right next to him on the sofa in the coffee shop!!!
Easy peasy, and it doesn't cost you a thing.

Yes, google is fantastic, but often I google something and when I arrive at the store it's not stocked there and no-one can tell me if they've ever stocked it. I then complain to my Swedish friends and they laugh and tell me you can't trust the internet.

I found one in a shop which doesn't have a web presence smile.gif

You ask for help and then go off and find one yourself. Good luck to you, but it was a bit dumb asking on here then. angry.gif

Just for information, the catalogue shops like Clas Ohlson, Jula, Biltema, Kjell & Company, Teknikmagasinet have in their shops and sell on line just what is in their catalogues. You might not want car spares, power tools or computer spares, but if you look at those catalogues on line, or have them on your shelf at home, you have a reasonably reliable start to any search for goods of different kinds, the first three having household goods.

Åhlens in Stockholm has a small stock of all kinds of bags, it's worth the trip and getting yourself something decent.

There's a good little luggage store on dragabrunnsgatan in central Uppsala, just a few metres down from Burger King. Pretty sure you'll be able to get the sort of bag you're after in there.

The best suitcase I ever bought was in 1999 in a small shop. It was HUGE! Then on my frist trip with Ryanair, coming back from the UK, the handle was broken. It was only the one on the side though so I still ued it...hmmm but still...then a few years later Ryanair broke it again when they ripped the side of it.

I went to Guns in Pers G. A very pleasant lady helped me buy one the right size and even spoke slow Swedish so I could practice. Excellent service and I didn't spend a fortune.

And who's a troll? Streja?

No, a guy posted the same message on 5 different threads with a string of links to outlets. One was for handbags, but not for bags/cases which you wanted.

He was the troll, but The Local picked up on him and deleted his posts. My troll comment got left. How could my reference be to Streja when she posted after me ?

PS You didnt look at my link to Clas Ohlson then ! Why did I bother ? No Xmas card for you this year. But I still recommend you visit their store and get a copy of their catalogue for reference.

I'm sorry if my post was a bit off topic but my point was that the best one I ever bought was a cheap one from a small shop in a small town.

Not much use I know sorry! smile.gif
