Drogerijen: A J van der Pigge sinds 1849

Drogerijen: A J van der Pigge sinds 1849
My Dutch friend Michiel told me a interesting story about this pharmacy/ chemist/ drogerij A J van der Pigge. Apparently the van der Pigge has been in the drug business since 1849. In the 1920s, department store chain Vroom & Dreesmann (V&D) bought up the shops around van der Pigge, hoping to build a flagship store in Haarlem.

The van der Pigge simply refused to sell and move out of this site. In the end, V&D relented and had to design their store around van der Pigge. Click on the first link below for more info and photos from other people.
