Sailing straight across a shopping centre? It happens to you in the Frisian Woods, for instance in Gorredijk, sailing the Frisian Peat Course. In that lovely place you will also find one of the nicest women’s fashion shops of the Netherlands: Rinsma Fashion Plaza.

The eastern part of Friesland has some huge or exceptional, national known stores, accommodated in several towns. In Wolvega, at the industrial zone named Schipsloot, there’s a concentration of large furniture stores: Home Centre (including Friesland Holland Tourist Infocentre), Home5 Cash & Carry, Trendhopper XXL and Home Centre Outlet. This furniture strip with hundreds of shops and stands, restaurants en playgrounds for kids is always crowded.

Small but nice
In addition to the fashion giants such as Rinsma in Gorredijk, Passenheim Fashion Town in Wolvega and the four furniture shopping malls of Wolvega, there are dozens of smaller specialist shops with flourishing businesses. In Drachten you’ll find Patisserie Boonstra, purveyor to the Royal Household. If you’re interested in wood stoves and ironwork, pay a visit to Janco de Jong in Oldeberkoop and Gorredijk. You can’t leave Delfstrahuizen (Echtenerbrug), without popping in at the Frysian gift and souvenir shop Warenhuis De Boer and Gorredijk accommodates Puer Living in Style. Looking for a racing bicycle, a mountain bike or an e-bike? You’re most welcome at Weerman Tweewielers in Wolvega. Fore special addresses see the page Specials Shops in this magazine.
