Hi I-L,
Online grocery shopping is not really very popular in Denmark (yet?) and/or maybe because of that, the ones that exist are quite expensive. You will have a hard time finding online stores that are cheaper than the physical stores.

I would not describe Fotex, Aldi or Netto being small stores.

Are you talking about the size of the company or the premises?

An online store I use is Food From Home. It specialised in English food products.

I think the reason might be:
Regulation have ensured that there are several smaller, but fully sufficient, stores within walking or biking distance for the parts of the Danish population living in cities and larger villages.

Since there are several smaller stores in each local neighborhood the prices in these stores are kept at what is seen as a reasonably competitive level.

Since the prices are seen as reasonable and the local grocery store are less than 10 minutes away, it is really to cumbersome to buy groceries over the Internet and have them delivered next day, when you can just walk over and pick it up yourself. This gives the added advantage of being able to for instance pick out the best looking vegetables.

On the other hand the use of non-grocery online stores is quite widespread.
