130 Years of ILLUM

Throughout the year ILLUM has celebrated the 130 years since businessman Anton Carl Illum strolled through the streets of Copenhagen with 5.000 kr. in his bank account and a life-long dream of setting up his own shop.  

This Christmas, we are honoring A.C. Illum’s greatest achievements and legacy with a celebration unlike any other.

The Grand Heritage

In Spring 1891, dreams became reality as the store bell rang for the first time at ‘A.C. Illums Specialforretning’ in the center of Copenhagen. Every customer visiting the store the first day was gifted flower bouquets, and  A.C. Illum quickly became renowned as the first business owner to introduce the concept of service to the Danes. 

In A.C. Illum’s store, the most important rule was to never miss a thing. A rule that still pervades the store today with the amazing selection of local and international brands.

Friends of ILLUM

This Christmas, we are celebrating ILLUM’s 130th anniversary. But what is a department store without the many employees who each day contribute to making ILLUM spectacular. For that reason, each Advent Sunday, we will present you with an ILLUM employee who has walked the corridors for an anniversary-worthy period.
