Since the start 1918, Clas Ohlson has issued - at least - one catalogue every year. The catalog drop became an annual tradition for many. A Swede, who moved to Australia in the 1960s, wrote home: "What I miss the most is herring, crisp bread, lingonberry and the Clas Ohlson mail order catalogue."

Digitized and ready for you to browse. Click and read. Please note, though, that all catalogues are in Swedish.
The company Clas Ohlson was founded in 1918 in Insjön, Sweden, as a mail order firm. Articles that initially only could be ordered via our catalogue are, since the late 1980s, available in all our stores and, since the mid-1990s, also online. When we celebrate our centennial in 2018, we do it with customers in five markets, almost 5,000 co-workers, and a turnover of around 8 billion Swedish kronor. We are a listed company on Nasdaq Stockholm. Much has happened since our first days but one thing has remained the same: our determination to help and inspire people to improve their daily lives every day, by offering smart, simple, practical solutions at attractive prices.
