Danish Grocery Stores Opening hours during Christmas and New Year 2022

Updated:

Christmas and New Year are just around the corner, meaning more holidays are coming. That means closed shops and supermarkets (grocery stores) – or just changed opening hours. However, don’t let that stop you from getting the last of your shopping done, as several places will let you shop until Christmas Eve-New Year’s Day.

Whether you can do your shopping during the Christmas and New Year holidays varies from shop to shop. Several grocery stores are open until the last day of the year, but it’s worth bearing in mind that stores have changed opening hours in most cases.
