Hi Kasandra,

Thank you for commenting and those are excellent questions btw!

The answer to your first question is: “Hvor er den nærmeste [shop]?” This literally means “Where is the nearest [shop]?” Alternatively, you can also ask “Hvor ligger den nærmeste [shop]?” This literally means “Where lies the nearest [shop]?” When asking about a laundromat, however, you need to change “den” to “det” because “møntvaskeri” (”laundromat”) is a neuter gender noun. If you use “selvvask,” you can keep using “den,” because it is a common gender noun.

In short, the answer to your second question is: “Handel” refers to “deal” while “handler” refers to a person i.e. “dealer.”
For instance, if we take another look at those vocabulary words I wrote in the previous comment, you can see that “pet shop” is “dyrehandel” while “florist” is “blomsterhandler.”
Now, you might be wondering about “furniture store” being “møbelhandler.” Well, in this case, “furniture store” and also be “møbelhandel.”
You can more or less use “-handel” and “-handler” interchangeably, depending on whether you want to refer to a shop/place or a person who sells whatever it is you are looking to buy.

I hope this answered your questions, but please let us know if you need something clarified.

Thank you!

😄 Hi! Thanks for the response. Hmm I have a couple of questions. How do u say where’s the nearest say laundromat? And what’s the difference btw handel and handler in shop names? I was in Denmark the winter that just passed. X

Hi Kasandra,

Thank you for your comment.

Glad to hear you found this lesson interesting. When were you traveling in Denmark?

What a great idea for a future lesson! Common shop names.

Until then, I’ll teach you some of them.

Clothes shop - tøjbutik
Shoe shop - skobutik
Candy shop - slikbutik
Pet shop - dyrehandel
Furniture store - møbelhandler
Florist - Blomsterhandler

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Mange tak!

Interesting. Thanks! The only word that comes to mind from this line is Selvask -Laundromat, whilst I was travelling in Denmark. Could you teach us more about common shop names perhaps? Mange tak.
