Dear customers,

Due to the developments of the past days and hours, we have made a decision that seems to us to be the only right one: we will close all our stores from Tuesday morning, March 17, 2020. Given the influx we have known over the past few days, we think this is the only correct decision for our employees, but especially for you as a loyal customer.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide a new update on our website on Friday 20 March 2020. We hope that all the measures taken will have the desired effect. 

We hope for your understanding for this difficult choice, which was only made out of a standpoint for everyone's safety and well-being. 

We wish everyone good health and expect to welcome everyone back in the near future!
