While the Christmas approaches, shopping tops. The number of card payment in Norway, where there are only 5.5 million live, amazed the retailers. In only one day, between 6.7 and 7 million transactions were done in the country.
Norwegians have spent a total of NOK 51 billion on Christmas shopping this year, according to Statistics Norway. On average, each person’s average spending has reached more than NOK 10,000.
It is estimated that 40 per cent of this will be spent on food and drinks, NRK reports.
