Shopping tips in Nijmegen

A lace bra and a cactus family. A pair of high heels and some vinyl records. A cookery book and a hairdressing salon. What’s going on here? That’s what you’ll be wondering when you step inside Make My Day (Stikke Hezelstraat 65 in Nijmegen). A unique and versatile store for men and women. The shop captures the essence of the streets of New York, Paris, Denmark and Italy – all that on just one trip to Nijmegen!

An old factory full of the latest and greatest interior design items: C-more concept store (Waalbandijk 8c in Nijmegen) is full of nice surprises. Located at the Honigcomplex, this unusual shop sells products by young, local designers as well as by more established names. It’s a light and airy store with a terrific vibe. Our advice is: C for yourself.
