If you can’t find it here, you’re not gonna find it. This four story building is bigger then most malls in the U.S. and it’s filled with furniture of every kind. You name it, they sell it. Porta also has a large home decor, kitchen accessories and children’s section with toys, clothes, and more. Even if you don’t need anything, this place is worth stopping by. Outside it has a food vendor with brats and pommes (frys for us Americans!) and an ATM. Inside is a small sandwich restaurant, a bakery counter, and upstairs is a full cafe (cash only).
If you need to take the kids, head straight to the level 3 (fourth floor) and head to the back corner where there is a place for them to play (ages 4-10 only) and be supervised by employees while you do your shopping. The hours for the Kids area is:
Mon-Fri 1400-1900 Sat 1030-1800 School Holidays 1200-1900
Although I have not personally used the VAT form here, I have been told that they DO accept it!
