In the Netherlands it has been a tradition for many years now, but in Belgium it’s still a relatively new phenomenon: the Shopping Sundays. This winter Ghent will see its first four editions. Then, from March unwards, there will be fixed opening hours on each first Sunday of the month.
On December the 4th , 11th and 18th and on January 8th shops in Ghent’s inner city will be open for the Shopping Sundays. A perfect time to do some Christmas shopping. And if it all becomes a bit “last minute”, then you can still shop during the evening of December 23th. The fourth Shopping Sunday on January 8 is in the middle of the sales season, which runs from January 8 to 31 2017.
From March 5th 2017 onwards, shops in the city centre of Ghent will open during each first Sunday of the month. All participating shops can be recognised by their window banners.Shop & Hop
– a service for handsfree shopping – fits perfectly in the concept of comfortable and carefree shopping on Sunday in the city of Ghent.
And if you feel like dropping after all that shopping, our steadfast Hotel Astoria
is there to receive you! If you bought too much, then you can always book a second room.
