So Proud of Our Produce!

With healthy greens, a variety of vegetables, colorful fruits and herbs that can transform any meal, our produce section is the first thing that greets you when you enter our store. We highlight which products are in season, so that you can shop responsibly and shop for maximal freshness.


Do you think I’m ugly? Found a piece of produce that doesn’t meet your standards? If you have found a fruit or a vegetable that you think  isn’t suited for sale, you can simply put it aside in a special container for produce that is past its prime.

Gotta Keep It Fresh!

Despite our low prices, we cut no corners when it comes to freshness. Our vegetable section is brimming with local produce and our meat selection has a variety of quality meat of impeccable freshness.  Every day we restock our bread and pastry section with fresh products, as we know that there’s nothing that smells better than a loaf of freshly baked bread.  Well, perhaps babies, but we don’t sell those.

Good for Your Wallet and Great for the Environment!

Everyone Deserves a Second Chance

Food waste is one of the biggest threats to our planet and we want to do our best to reduce it. That’s why we don’t throw away products with a damaged packaging or that are past the best-by-date if we deem them safe for consumption. Instead, we transparently offer them on a heavily reduced price.  Perhaps you’ll find the perfect base for your dinner tonight and make a bargain?

You Look Gorgeous!

You truly do! But you still might want to take a look at our cosmetics section in one of our larger stores.  Get a better value for your money and expand your makeup selection without breaking the bank. Why splurge on makeup when you can spend your money on sushi instead?

Free Fruit for the Little Ones

Shopping with children can be quite stressful, especially if your kid has a growling stomach.  We want your kids to be happy, not “hangry”, so we offer every child a fresh fruit to nibble on whilst shopping.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

Waiting in queue is nobody’s favorite thing about grocery shopping.  Most of our stores now offer self-service counters so that you can checkout on your own speed.  An easy system and supportive staff will help you get on your way in no time! Do note that the automatic self-service counters are just as confused about the Icelandic currency as you are, so they only accept cards! Cash is of course still welcomed by our cashiers.


Welcome to Kr.-

This little soup of punctuation and consonants might seem a bit scary to the untrained eye at first, but it’s simply the abbreviation for the word Krónan which you probably already know is the local currency. The Kr.- stores are smaller community versions of Krónan supermarkets, found in some of the picturesque towns and villages around the island. At the Kr.- convenience stores you’ll find all the essentials for a household with the same price tag as in any of our Krónan supermarkets, but additionally a range of other products suitable on the go.

Krónan – Around the Corner

We operate a variety of discount grocery stores around the country, mainly in the capital city and along the South Coast.  Krónan is conveniently located in almost every neighbourhood in the capital area, making it one of the most accessible supermarket chains in Reyjavík. Find the nearest store.
