Supermarkets at Charlottenberg celebrated when the Norwegian authorities lifted the travel ban. Although, they are also worried if they have enough meat. 

-”The celebrations have now subsided, because everyone is working frantically to get the store up and running.”, said the Marketing Manager, Tobias Lindh, of Hypermat at Charlottenberg to Aftenposten.

The Norwegian authorities announced on friday that the Swedish regions of Kalmar, Örebro, Värmland, and Östergötland will become green zones in the government’s new travel advisory.

Many stores have lost a large portion of their revenue since the borders were closed. They are now trying hard to fill the shelves with Norwegian’s favorite products. Lindh at Hypermat explained that the amount of fresh pork and beef is limited, but has plenty of chicken. 

-” they’ll manage with 11 varieties of bacon. Normally we have maybe 12 varieties.”, said the Store Manager, Tommy Johansson, at Coop-owned Maximat. 

The new travel advisory will take effect from midnight on saturday evening. Customs expect traffic at the border.
