The grocery shops stay open until around 23.00, but other shops has earlier hours and are normally closed by 17.00 on weekdays and 14-15 on Saturdays. If you want to buy beer in the grocery shops you must do this before 20.00 on weekdays and 18.00 on Saturday. No alcohol is sold in shops on Sundays in Norway.
