Opening hours and information about Valkea

Valkea is the heart of Oulu

The Valkea Shopping Centre consists of around 60 shops and restaurants. The centre was completed in 2016 and is owned by the Arina Cooperative Society.

Valkea consists of two blocks. It combines the former Gallery Block, City House and Sampo House. The shopping centre has five floors, with a total of 25,000 square metres of commercial facilities. Its 60 shops have a total of 500 employees.

Valkea borders three streets: Pakkahuoneenkatu, Uusikatu and Kauppurienkatu. The two Valkea blocks are connected by Kesäkatu, a covered street, which is part of the Isokatu pedestrian zone. Kesäkatu provides a new space for events in the city centre throughout the year. It also serves as a meeting place and living room.  Organisations, communities and hobby groups can organise events on Kesäkatu and its stage. The events are coordinated by the Valkea Shopping Centre.
