When shopping in Kristiansand in Norway I usually visit the mall Sørlandssenteret which is best for Vanilla Coke + cake. My favorite store for shopping clothing in Kristiansand is RETRO who carries labels such as ACNE, Canada Goose, Tiger of Sweden, Whyred, and more. The assortment is not overwhelming, but well-organized within the spacious store.
Opening hours: Mon – Fri: 10-19, Sat 10-17
Sandens is prettier on the outside than it is exciting on the inside. There’s Carlings for clothing, Kicks for makeup, and Vitusapotek for drugs.
Opening hours: Mon – Fri: 9-20, Sat 10-18
Opposite Sandens is Alone / Together. They have no website except for a facebook page, but I guess all you need to know is they sell Surface to Air.
Noa Noa is found if you venture further into the center of Kristiansand.
If you are not looking for clothing at all, but are into interior and kitchenware then visit Hansen & Co. Since 1982 this store can only be found in Kristiansand.
