Norwegians Stock Up On Beverages, Tobacco On Cross-Border Trips: Study

Norwegian consumers tend to stock up on soft drinks and mineral water, alcohol, tobacco and confectionery when shopping cross-border, according to a new study by Statistics Norway (SSB).

It conducted a pilot study in September of last year, which saw respondents asked to fill out a web-based form outlining their cross-border purchases that month.

It found that Norwegian consumers spent NOK 2 billion (€202 million) on cross-border shopping in the period, and engaged in 1.2 million shopping trips. This works out at around NOK 1,632 (€165) per trip, according to SSB.
