Italian gourmet food store Eataly will open its first store in Scandinavia by Christmas.
The 2,000 square metre store will be located within the Illum department store in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Besides a large assortment of traditional Italian food products, the store will also offer cooking classes and an in-store restaurant.
The initiative is the result of a partnership with Coop Denmark, already present within Illum with an Irma supermarket, which will close to give way to Eataly.
As well as 19 stores in Italy, Eataly has been gradually expanding its international presence, with outlets in Munich, New York, Chicago, Istanbul, Tokyo, Yokohama, Dubai, Seoul and Sao Paulo.
