Every day you can read what people think of the news of the day. Today: This is what he says on our NUjij response platform about the decrease in the number of non-food stores on shopping streets, which have been replaced by stores that sell food and drinks (food stores).
“De meeste winkelstraten in het centrum zijn de moeite van het bezoeken niet meer waard. Tel daarbij op de exorbitante parkeerbelasting dan is online winkelen gewoon een verademing. Bovendien zien veel straten er door de leegstand niet aantrekkelijk meer uit. Ook is de keuze is reuze beperkt. En eettentjes zijn leuk, maar voor de gewone man eigenlijk niet meer te betalen.”
“Toch mis ik die tijd dat je aan het struinen was door de platenzaak. De fame in Amsterdam, was mijn favoriete zaak. En kwam er geregeld met een aankoop naar buiten. De expo zat er toen naast, ook een geweldige hebbedingetjes winkel. Toen was het nog leuk om te winkelen. Nu ga je naar de stad voor iets wat je nodig hebt en helaas komt het vaak voor dat je stuit om missende producten/artikelen die je dan alsnog online moet bestellen. Het vertrouwde winkelstraat is niet meer helaas. Het is toch wel goed om bepaalde stoffen te voelen om te weten wat je nodig hebt.”
User DonDeCock says:
“I don’t think these changes are more than logical and I don’t understand the complaints either.”
“The consumer decides. He decides where, when and what to buy and if he eats fast food.”
“Since the development of the Internet as a retail platform, I never go to the shopping streets again. The same chains in every city and the one piece of clothing I was looking for was never available in my size and my shoe size was always out of stock, which I had to trust faded show model “Online I have almost no problem with that, just on sale. On the main street I only go to record stores at most; article mentions CD and streaming, but actual records, vinyl is back.”
“By the way, you can also find a coffee corner in the biggest one in Amsterdam, where at any time of the day you see people digging for that ironing they are looking for. My hairdresser has, in addition to his services, clothes, drinks and cake on the menu. If you offer more service, everything will be fine.”
User Reflections says:
“I’ll be the exception, but since the city center seemed to become more like a caterer than a store, I almost don’t go downtown anymore. And, in fact, the number of record stores here has gone from 5 to 1. And the one that remained has a smaller offer than 10 years ago and only sells the best to stay afloat.”
“It makes a difference that I can cook very well myself and my food requirements are quite high. Many of the new catering establishments are mainly modern and overpriced. I have little interest in the 37th sandwich shop in town, whereas there is only 1 good sushi restaurant, for example”.
User Opa_Vertelt says:
“Here, in the city center of Enschede, there are mainly restaurants, trinkets and women’s fashion. Fortunately, there are still 2 good men’s fashion stores, 1 of which is affordable for me. For other things, I have to go to the smaller malls, for good shoes to Hengelo. I think it’s a shame, but the city center is doing well with relatively little vacancy and that has sometimes been different, so apparently there’s a need for this.”
