Update: 2:50 p.m.: The supermarket has reopened. The closure, for safety reasons, was due to the break of an aging water main pipe. No damage or loss of inventory is being reported.
Svalbardbutikken closed its doors at about 1:20 p.m. Monday afternoon due to a water line problem that is flooding part of the store. Morten Helliksen, the store’s administrative director, said he expects the store to remain closed for up to 90 minutes.
About Post Author
I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
