Spring is here! So nice to feel the warmth of the sun again. That also means that the holidays are approaching. King's Day, Easter, Pentecost... Beautiful days to go out in the city! Below is an overview of the adjusted opening hours.

Good Friday

Friday April 7 is Good Friday. On this day you can shop until the evening hours, just like on any other Friday. So it will be a regular shopping evening as we are used to.

Most shops will take over the opening hours as used on Sunday. This year there are a few exceptions; these shops will open at regular times on King's Day: The Racing Store, Kruidvat, Nelson, Plaza Juwelier, Media Markt, Van Haren, Lunch café Raoul, Cafe Pol, Hema (until 6 p.m.), Specsavers and de Bijenkorf (from 11 a.m.).
