Bricks go further than Clicks; the distance paradox

Measured in ton-km verKoopwinkel sales to distant countries are done mostly directly in the store to traders who buy truckloads / container loads full to ship abroad.

Once in a while we ship a doll to Norway or a clarinet to Greece, but we have sold for thousands of euro's to merchants from Lithuania, Poland, South America and the U.S. who come directly to the store and load up. They also visit Het GOED and the West Friese Beurs among other addresses.

Today we also sold a number of articles to Marcel Wanders Studio in Amsterdam, by a mix of Internet and in store buying.
