Metro, a new Icelandic fast food chain, opened in three locations in Reykjavík, replacing McDonald’s, which closed shop for good previous Saturday evening. The first day of business was successful, according to the owner, Jon Gardar Ogmundsson, Iceland Review reported on 2 November. We’ve been crazily busy and customers have been very pleased, Ögmundsson said. The lines have been huge and the lines for the drive-ins have not been shorter than 50 meters all day. Icelanders gave McDonald’s a heartfelt farewell during its last week of operation. Ogmundsson, who used to operate its branches in Iceland, stated that between 100,000 and 110,000 people had dined at the fast food chain previous week.
