Leif Handlare or Leif´s shop is a Smedstorps own general store, one of the few remaining on Österlen.
It is owned and ran by the Andersson family, now for four generations, and in the same old style. Filled with lots of "nostalgy" products, to shop at Leif´s is like delicious travel in time.
Old toys and games, cans and sweets in retro design. All is garnished by colorful advertising panels from the past, some of them used in the long history of the shop.
On the other hand, here you can buy freshly baked bread and pastry, locally produced eggs, meat and cheese, a rich collection of tea and coffee sorts, evening papers, and stamps...basically anything that a grocery shop should have on a daily basis.
And If you need something that they don´t stock, they will order it for you. Home delivery can be arranged if needed.
It is such a delight to visit Leif Handlare as opposed to actual shopping malls and supermarkets.
Compared to those, this shop still preserves a human touch, and makes shopping, even if it´s only for groceries, much more fun.
Leif Handlare is open every day, 8 am to 18 pm from Monday to Friday, and 8 am to 12 pm on Saturdays. Sundays the shop is closed.
