Tiger

Yesterday walking a random street in Barcelona, I saw "Tiger" spelled out in familiar white letters on a black background over a shop entrance. Can it be? No, for sure it's not. It's probably some independent shop of some kind, and they thought the name was catchy. Those were my thoughts, cause what's the chance? Well anyhow, I had to check it out so I crossed the street and went up to the shop. Hopeful till the last moment, I stepped inside and saw that –YES it was in fact the Danish chain store of Tiger! 

I have close family in Denmark and have been to Denmark many many times, and I always make sure to stop by a Tiger  store just cause they have so much fun stuff at a great price. I was thrilled to find a Tiger-shop in Barcelona!!

When I came home I went onto the website, and I found that they have stores in many countries now, and two in Barcelona. So it turns out it wasn’t as unique as I thought, but I am delighted to be able to shop at Tiger here!

    1. If I dare, I'll take some pictures from inside, there are so much fun stuff! I say dare, cause several times I have been yelled at for taking pictures in shops here :O

  2. I just went to their website and now I'm horribly upset that we don't have these State-side. It looks like so much fun!

    1. I have to check out the other shop here in Barcelona, maybe it's bigger and even more awesome! Maybe I'll even take a couple pictures (but it seems they don't like that here, so I'll see...)

    1. Wow, you heard about it! I see it's become a bigger 'brand' than I realized :) Thank you, I am so glad I found one here too!

    2. I think it's pretty famous is the UK, but I am not sure. But I looked at their homepage and they have so many fabulous things there! I really want to go to one of their stores!

    1. I'll see if 'me animo' and I'll take some pictures. But it's a bit scary to take out the camera cause I've been yelled at several times in shops "No fotos! No fotos!!"
      Talking about the heat, it's too much for Norwegian me these days. 30 degrees at night with no AC- can you learn to sleep well in such heat I wonder?

    2. Elsker butikker ala Søstrene Grene ol. Denne har jeg ikke hørt om, men skal innom Køben i september, om den ikke er i Oslo allerede da. Finnes en artig butikk på Arkaden, får sjekke om det er Tiger.

    3. Fast på min liste hver gang jeg er i Danmark er Søstrene Grene og Tiger :) Det er litt i samme gate, dog litt annerledes. Mens SG har mer 'fine' ting har kanskje Tiger mer 'morsomme' ting, men det er også mye likt. I Køben er det mange Tiger!:)

  6. Moments and discoveries like this can make such a difference when you're living in another country. I'm so happy for you! It looks quite popular too!

    1. Exactly Vanisha! It's like a piece from 'home' (although not quite). But finding Tiger made me smile big :)

    1. I have been shopping at Tiger in Denmark for about 14 years I think, and it was always on my 'must-do-list' when there. It's so nice that they are expanding and that I can find them here :) (And also nice to hear that other people wihtout previous knowledge of it like it too!)
