this winter city exists just about anything visitors require: some 170 shops, restaurants and services in 36,000 squere meters of leasable area. There are sophisticated fashion shops selling the latest designs, hip boutiques, international brand name shops, jewellery shops, music stores, a liquor store, nutrition centres, book stores, crystalware shops, souvenir shops and an art gallery.
And there's more: a newly designed food court contains everything from fast-food chains and an internet café to brasserie dining and Reykjavík´s Hard Rock Café is located in Kringlan. Entertainment and cultural tastes are catered to thanks to Kringlan´s modern, multi-screen cinema and the City Theatre, which is only a short covered walk from the cinema. Also located in Kringlan are banks offering foreign currency exhange, a travel agency, an airline sales office, doctors´ offices, and pharmacies.
Kringlan has a good mix of international brands and the country´s leading retailers that are mostly family companies. The anchor stores in Kringlan are Hagkaup, the leading grocery and department store in Iceland, and Nanoq, a premiere lifestyle and sporting goods store.
Store owners import from around the world, with emphasis on goods from France, Germany, Britain, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, U.S.A. and Italy. Prices on quality labels are quite reasonable. In fact foreign tourists regularly visit Kringlan looking for bargains.
