Retail By City

The HagueNetherlands

City not ranked

City Overview

The Hague is the third largest city in the Netherlands by population. Accommodating both the Dutch government and the royal family, The Hague has a major role in policy-making, which is usually reserved for the national capital. This makes the city a popular destination for foreign tourists and domestic day trippers. The Hague is the also third largest city in the Netherlands by retail stock. The main shopping area is located in the historic city centre and is divided roughly into three parts. Internationally and nationally known fashion chains such as H&M, Mango and The Sting are situated at Spuistraat and Venestraat. The highest footfall is registered in these two streets. Department stores, such as De Bijenkorf and Hema are located at Grote Marktstraat. Hudson's Bay will open a store in the former V&D building, together with Stradivarius, Perry Sport and Decathlon. High-end retailers can be found around Hoogstraat, such as Michael Kors and Massimo Dutti. The Hague is reinforcing the city centre as retail destination. Spuimarkt and the redevelopment of Haagse Passage (12,000 sq m) were completed still recently, and in addition project De Markies and Nieuwe Haagse Passage (high-grade retail strip connected to the 'old' Haagse Passage). Primark has opened a store at Kalvermarkt in 2014. Regarding large-scale retail, Haaglanden Megastores (100,000 sq m) in the Laakhaven district meets this need. It is one of the largest covered retail destinations in the country. It also includes a strip of home furnishing stores. Outside The Hague, the neighbouring towns of Rijswijk and Leidschendam offer In de Bogaard (75,000 sq m) and Leidsenhage (78,000 sq m) shopping centres. SC Leidsenhage is being redeveloped and will also be extended, up to roughly 117,000 sq m in total. Its new name will be 'Mall of the Netherlands'.
