Coop: Consumer owned
Coop is a chain of grocer's stores owned by the consumers. Everybody can buy a stock at a price of NOK 300. The shops are spread all over Norway (and Denmark and Sweeden). There are (at least) three of them in Drangedal: Kroken avd. 1 right next to Brøsjø Station, Kroken avd. 2 in Neslandsvatn and COOP Marked in Prestestranda (the community center).
What to buy: In rural places, like Kroken in Drangedal, you can not only buy your daily groceries, but "anything" else you need, like garden soil, fish-hooks or electrical plugs and cables, or you can have your prescription drugs sent here from the nearest pharmacy.

MIX Storkiosk: This place has everything!
I have described the cafe / restaurant, the sports pub and the beer shop in other tips. There is also a kiosk / grocery store, ATM, post office and a video rental department. You can even entertain yourself by playing on the slot machines.
What to buy: They cover the basic needs for food, as well as sweets, tobacco and magazines.
What to pay: A little more than in the nextdoor grocery store, but the opening hours are much longer.
