1. Piekfijn

Piekfijn in het centrum van Rotterdam is een kringloopwinkel met allemaal hebbedingetjes. Op de begane grond heb je meubels, maar ook electra, kleding, servies en meer. In de kelder heb je schilderijen, lijsten, fietsen en meubels. Op de bovenste etage heb je een hoop grote meubels, boeken en servies.

Piekfijn is probably the best known thrift store among most locals in Rotterdam. There are four Piekfijn thrift shops in our city: Piekfijn Centrum, Piekfijn Prins Alexander, Piekfijn Hoogvliet and Piekfijn Charlois.

At these Piekfijn thrift stores you can find everything from furniture to clothing and from electrical appliances to books.

Since 3 February 2020, the municipality of Rotterdam has transferred the recycling activities of the four Rotterdam Piekfijn stores to the recycling chain Het Goed. The name will officially change in September 2020.

TIP: Did you know that Het Goed can also pick up items that you no longer need? Think of bags with clothing and electronic devices. Of course, the items still have to be in good condition.


2. Opnieuw & Co

There is currently one Opnieuw & Co department store in Rotterdam. This huge 2,200 m² thrift shop can be found in Prins Alexander.

After shopping you can also take a seat in the coffee corner Tosti & Co and order food and drinks!
