Primark Amsterdam Beurspassage

The store’s main entrance is on Damrak. There is also a side entrance in the newly renovated Beurspassage, which links Damrak and main shopping street Nieuwendijk.  Primark Amsterdam is a flagship store is very popular with both visitors & locals alike. But why would you spend time in a budget clothing store when there are so many cultural things to do in the city?

Situated near the central station on Damrak, Primark Amsterdam is located in the historic centre of Amsterdam. The store has six floors in total with large windows at the front and the rear. The views from the windows at the front and the rear of the store are pleasant. The front of the store overlooks Bijenkorf & Beurs van Berlage. The back of the store gives nice cityscape across the rooftops towards Westerkerk.

Charge your mobile

The likelihood of your mobile battery running low is real. Using the GPS function for navigation. Taking picture & videos.  Primark has really gone the extra mile to woo their customers. They created special re-charge zones on each of the floors. So, while your friends or partner are bargain-hunting, you can take a seat and recharge your mobile.

Cheap souvenirs

All the major cities souvenir stores will try and cash-in by selling over-priced goods. Primark has seen a gap in the market and launched their own range of Amsterdam merch.  Whilst the range is not quite so large as the specialist store, they have got the basics covered with t-shirts, mugs, bags, etc.

Cheap clothing

Most people on a weekend break try and pack light and make-do with just carry-on luggage. The modest prices at Primark mean you can supplement your outfit if the temperatures suddenly change.  The weather in Amsterdam can be unpredictable – particularly in Spring & Autumn. Budget priced umbrellas, gloves & scarves saved me this winter during an evening of nighttime photography!

Free toilets

Charging customers 50c – €1,00 for the use of toilets is commonplace in The Netherlands.  Primark Amsterdam has brought the free toilet philosophy from their UK stores. That’s a relief!
