IngibjörgIngibjörg PálmadóttirIngibjörg Stefanía
Ingibjörg Stefanía Pálmadóttir (born 1961) is an Icelandic businesswoman, daughter of Pálmi Jónsson and so, with her three siblings, one of the inheritors of Pálmi's Hagkaup business. She attended the Parsons The New School for Design. Ingibjörg is noted for running a range of businesses, sometimes associated with the 'Reykjavík 101' brand popularised by Hallgrímur Helgason's novel 101 Reykjavík, prominently including the Reykjavík 101 Hotel, an expensive boutique hotel, and 101 Capital. 101 Capital was declared bankrupt in January 2012. Alongside her husband Jón Ásgeir, Ingibjörg was a prominent figure in the Icelandic banking boom and subsequent 2008–11 Icelandic financial crisis.

Jón Ásgeir Jóhannesson

Jón Ásgeir
In August 1992, Bónus's main competitor, Hagkaup, bought a 50% share in Bónus; Hagkaup was owned by the children of its founder, Pálmi Jónsson, one of whom, Ingibjörg Stefanía Pálmadóttir, Jón would later marry. Baugur Group was created to co-ordinate purchases by the two chains in 1993; following at times acrimonious negotiations between Jón Ásgeir and Pálmi's children, Baugur succeeded in acquiring Hagkaup in 1998, with Jón Ásgeir as CEO, making him 'one of the most powerful businessmen in Iceland'.

Hagar (company)

As of October 2016, the company operated 57 stores, including the Hagkaup and Bónus chains, and had approximately 2200 employees. Hagar hf is listed on the Iceland Stock Exchange as HAGA. Hagar also used to operate stores in Iceland under franchise agreements for Debenhams, Topshop, Zara, Warehouse, Evans, Dorothy Perkins and Karen Millen.

Baugur Group

In 1992, Hagkaup, the leading domestic retailer, acquired 50% of shares in Bonus. In 1993, they merged and formed a joint purchasing company named Baugur. Hagkaup was established over 50 years ago and, as a retailing pioneer, opened both supermarkets and department stores in Iceland. Hagkaup and Bonus merged as Baugur in 1998 and Jón Ásgeir Jóhannesson became the company's President and CEO. Baugur was listed on Iceland Stock Exchange the same year. In 1999, Baugur signed franchise agreements with the Arcadia Group and Debenhams for Scandinavia and today Hagar, (formerly Baugur-Iceland) runs several Topshop and Miss Selfridge stores in Iceland and Sweden as well as three Debenhams stores.


Bónus supermarket chain
In 1992, another Icelandic supermarket, Hagkaup, bought a 50% stake. In 1998 the chains merged, but keeping their separate identities, to form Baugur Group. Bónus and Hagkaup are now both owned by Baugur Group's subdivision Hagar. Bónus is always written with an accent on the “o”. Bónus (Iceland) website (in Icelandic).

hypermarketsbig-boxcombination supermarket/department stores
A "hypermarket" (sometimes called a "supercenter" or "superstore") is a big-box store combining a supermarket and a department store. The result is an expansive retail facility carrying a wide range of products under one roof, including full groceries lines and general merchandise. In theory, hypermarkets allow customers to satisfy all their routine shopping needs in one trip. The term hypermarket (hypermarché) was coined in 1968 by French trade expert Jacques Pictet.


Hofsós is one of the oldest trading ports in northern Iceland dating back to the 16th century. The tiny village Hofsós in the Northern Region in Iceland was a rather busy trading post in the 17th and 18th century, but despite the merchant activities this small village did not develop into a larger village or a town in the 20th century. Hofsós had all the historical prerequisites to become a large town. It was a trading post for the Danish Trade Monopoly, it was not far away from the fishing grounds, it was central in the region, and it had a relatively good landing spot for boats.


Iceland (Ísland ) is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic, with a population of and an area of 103000 km2, making it the most sparsely populated country in Europe. The capital and largest city is Reykjavík, with Reykjavík and the surrounding areas in the southwest of the country being home to over two-thirds of the population. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active. The interior consists of a plateau characterised by sand and lava fields, mountains, and glaciers, and many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Iceland is warmed by the Gulf Stream and has a temperate climate, despite a high latitude just outside the Arctic Circle.

Mail order

mail-ordercatalogmail-order catalog
Mail order is the buying of goods or services by mail delivery. The buyer places an order for the desired products with the merchant through some remote method such as through a telephone call or web site. Then, the products are delivered to the customer. The products are typically delivered directly to an address supplied by the customer, such as a home address, but occasionally the orders are delivered to a nearby retail location for the customer to pick up. Some merchants also allow the goods to be shipped directly to a third party consumer, which is an effective way to send a gift to an out-of-town recipient.

retailerretail storeshop
Retail is the process of selling consumer goods or services to customers through multiple channels of distribution to earn a profit. Retailers satisfy demand identified through a supply chain. The term "retailer" is typically applied where a service provider fills the small orders of a large number of individuals, who are end-users, rather than large orders of a small number of wholesale, corporate or government clientele. Shopping generally refers to the act of buying products. Sometimes this is done to obtain final goods, including necessities such as food and clothing; sometimes it takes place as a recreational activity.
