De Bijenkorf is "the" premier department store in The Netherlands, comparable to a Neiman Marcus in the United States, or a Harrod's in London. The store is arranged in the usual way, with the first floor devoted to high end cosmetics and perfumes and jewelry....More

Check ALL of your items before leaving the store and tell them to box in front of you. Just because it's a high-end store, doesn't mean mishap can't happen. Maybe it was my bad luck but I was helped by the worse sale associate of...More
