When expats first arrive in the Netherlands, they are often at a loss when it comes to shopping. They are completely in the dark about Dutch high street retail chains and will find it frustrating how long it can take to remember new store names.
For many of them, it can be a comfort to learn that their favorite department store from back home does ship here to the Netherlands. Not only does it reduce a little of the stress that comes with settling in to life in another country, but it also allows them to maintain a sense of identity, especially if the relocation is coming when they are in their 30’s, 40’s or 50’s.
Below is a list of the larger department store chains in the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia, Ireland, France, Spain and Germany, and whether or not it currently offers international shipping / delivery to the Netherlands.
