Jessheim Storsenter is a shopping centre located in the center of Jessheim, Norway. The shopping centre was originally opened in 1968, under the name of Fakkelsenteret. The name roughly translates as 'torch-center' and the center had a sculpture of the Roman goddess Vesta holding a torch that originally was lit by a natural gas flame.
May 31 1979 the shoppingcenter HK-Senteret was established next to Fakkelsenteret. It was built by Harald Kværner (HK) at the same site of his grocery store. HK-Senteret was rebuilt in 1996 and expanded in 1997 by Tore Kværner who at that point had taken over control of the center. The new HK-Senteret reopened November 13 1997 and had space for 35 shops.
Olav Thon purchased Fakkelsenteret in 1998. In 1999 Thon and Kværner initiated a joint operating agreement where the two centers would be joined together. The new combined center was known as Jessheim Storsenter. The new combined center opened in 2003 after a reconstruction that merged the two centers into one large building.
