V&D (PJ's impression) - Groningen

V&D (PJ's impression)

CLOSED: V&D: CLOSED: Your Everyday Department Store

Yes, also at Groningen: Vroom en Dreesman. Probably the most popular Dutch department store.

2016 Update: February 16, 2016 was a black day for the Vroom & Dreesmann stores. Despite negotiations with new investors, the chain was forced to close their store as the real estate owners had different ideas.

Address: Grote Markt 21 - 9712 HR Groningen

Directions: North of the Market Square
