Opening hours

Shops in Denmark open around 09:00 or 10:00 and close around 17:00 or 18:00 Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, many shops stay open until 19:00 or 20:00, and on Saturdays they normally close around 13.00 or 14.00. Most shops are closed on Sundays except for big department stores like Magasin and Salling, and malls like Bruun's Galleri.

There are, however, numerous exceptions to these opening hours, e.g.:
  • many shops are open on the first and last Saturday of the month.
  • many shops are open the first Sunday of the month.
  • in some places, the shops are also open on the last Sunday of the month.
  • small shops often have shorter opening hours.
  • many shops have longer opening hours during the period leading up to Christmas.
  • many of the supermarket chains open earlier in the morning, close later in the evening, and are open on Sundays.
