    Glerártorg shopping-center.: A shopping-center in Akureyri

    by Regina1965 Updated Apr 11, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a small mall in Akureyri called Glerártorg. It is worth visiting while in this area.

    There are some 45 stores here, both local and international. Here is the supermarket Nettó, Toys R Us, United Colors of Benetton and a lot of other clothes' stores, a big Rúmfatalagerinn department store with a wide selection of "everything" so to speak, the Icelandic store 66 degrees North, Iceland, with a great selection of quality clothing, café, health-food store and a milk bar and many more stores. There is also a bank there.

    Glerártorg Mall: Akureyri Shopping Mall

    by travelfrosch Updated Feb 5, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Glerártorg is the main shopping mall in Akureyri. It features a number of shops, to include a food court, a coffee shop, a Netto grocery store, and two mobile phone shops if you want to purchase a cell phone or SIM card.

    The mall is open 7 days a week, but limited hours (10 AM - 6:30 PM Monday-Friday, 10 AM - 5 PM Saturday, and 1PM - 5 PM Sunday). The Netto grocery store is open slightly (but only slightly) longer hours.

    What to buy: You can get more or less anything, from groceries to clothes to toys to electronics to a cell phone.

    What to pay: Iceland is expensive in general, but most items are likely less so in a mall outlet such as this.

    Hagkaup: 24-Hour Supermarket in Akureyri

    by travelfrosch Updated Jul 22, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When we returned to Akureyri, I was curious as to why the 10-11 convenience store had closed its doors. Then I found out. The new Hagkaup supermarket is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This came in very handy for us to pick up breakfast on our first morning, as well as all of the supplies we needed for our stay. Because it was always open, I expected it would be more expensive than the other markets in town, but it really wasn't. I did notice their baked goods are a bit on the pricey side and not particularly fresh; we ended up eating breakfast with a loaf of standard sliced bread after the first morning. The dairy products, cheeses, jams, meats, and fruits were all just fine and reasonably priced by Iceland standards.

    What to buy: The store primarily offers what you'd expect in a grocery store, but it also has some clothing and small appliances, as well as selected items of prepared food such as baked goods and fried chicken.

    What to pay: Prices are roughly in line with the other grocery stores in Akureyri.

    Tíu ellefu (10-11): 10-11? 10-4!

    by travelfrosch Updated Jun 28, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    UPDATE: This branch of 10-11 is now closed.

    This convenient shop right at the intersection of two main streets in downtown Akureyri is a nice find. It has a small selection of groceries and beverages, along with a very good salad bar. While the store is not open from 10 to 11 as the name might indicate (nor is it open 24 hours despite the "24" decals posted everywhere), it has long hours and is a possible alternative to the expensive hotel and guesthouse breakfasts for those on a budget.

    What to buy: The salad bar is a great choice for budget lunch or dinner.

    What to pay: Depending on what you get, you'll spend Kr 500-1000 for a good meal-sized salad and a drink. Remember that you pay for the salad by size of the container, not weight.

    Frúin í Hamborg antique shop.: An awesome vintage/antique shop in Akureyri.

    by Regina1965 Updated Jul 24, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Frúin í Hamborg is a very popular antique shop in Akureyri. It is ever so lovely with a lot of rooms filled with all kinds of antique. You can find almost everything in there and it is a delight just wandering around the store looking for small treasures.

    In a seperate room there is a vintage clothes store with all kinds of vintages clothes, fur coats and shoes.

    A highly recommended visit - I know most Icelandic women visit this shop when ever they are in Akureyri.

    Opening hours are: Monday-Friday 11:00-18:00. Saturday: 11:00-16:00.

    Shops like these add colour to the community :)

    Unfortunately this shop closed down in July 2012.

    Turninn: A small scale Willy Wonka

    by brazwhazz Written Mar 15, 2005

    Turninn is a very cute red building that is about half the size of its neighbours. Icelanders are known for having a very sweet tooth. If you need a sugar fix, this is an excellent place to get it!

    What to buy: If you have a sweet tooth or want to bring back something typically Icelandic for your friends (or, especially, kids), this makes an excellent stop! Will you dare try the chocolate-covered licorice?

    What to pay: It all depends on your discipline.
