Over 150 years of shopping experience

Over a century and a half ago, in 1870, Amsterdam entrepreneur Simon Philip Goudsmit opened a small haberdashery shop called Magazijn de Bijenkorf (‘the Beehive Magazine’) on the city’s central Nieuwendijk shopping street.

Today, in 2022, de Bijenkorf is the oldest and most luxurious chain of department stores in the Netherlands, with seven stores spread throughout the country and online stores in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France and Austria.
