Brugsen: A supermarket, a clothes shop and much more
Brugsen is in fact the Cooperative Society. As with many other shops, this store has everything you need. It is a combination of bakery, clothes store, supermarket, music store, toy store and well everything else you need. The store has two floors, the food outlet is on the ground floor and the all the other services are on the second floor.
Interestingly, outside of the store there is a local market; I do have to say that is a bit of a bigger description of the actuality. Local people come and sell things - books, shoes, art work and knitted goods. It is quite sad, as not only the sellers are standing, but also their families in many cases.

Pisiffik: The supermarket under the hotel!
Like so many other shops in Nuuk, they sell a wide range of things. This is a supermarket, located within the Hotel Hans Egede complex. As well as being a supermarket, they sell clothes, electrical goods and well a huge range of things.
There are one og two shops with local crafts, but maybe you are lucky to meet a local craftsman. This guy sold me 3 small seals he had made of some kind of stone for only $20.
What to buy: Jackets, shoes and gloves of seal of course and tupilacs.
Atuagkat Boghandel is no more!: Formerly Greenland's largest bookshop
Sadly the book store is no more, I understand that there is now a large shopping centre located right on the top of where this once stood.
Thanks to "The View" (aka Allan) for the information!
