“You have a store to open and not to close …” that’s what my father used to say when we asked if he couldn’t close the store a little earlier. What would he have said now? A closed shop with an unsold winter collection …

And what would he say about the riots in Geleen? Where we used to have our menswear store (from the 1970s to the 1990s). Fortunately, he never had to experience such a thing.

Yes, we had some inconvenience from the Pinkpop visitors in Geleen in the 1980s. Now and then a spray of “punks” in the porch. My brother and I found it very interesting …

But it is nothing compared to the forced closure, the riots and the horrific store looting in the country. That is on top of the difficult times of the affected shop owners …

We want nothing more than to be able to go back into town, go on vacation, visit family and much more … I am also eager to open the door of my boutique in Maastricht and receive you with a nice cup of coffee and proud to show and tell about the new collection, but I have to wait patiently for that …

In the meantime, I try to show my boutique online and hopefully I can repeat my father’s words in March ….
