We've got big news!

Dear reader,

we've been busy - very busy - lately, and are excited to finally share the news: the ABC will open a third temporary store this summer!

Our pop-up store in Stadshart Amstelveen will offer a hand-picked ABC staff selection of the finest English-language books on offer: fiction, non-fiction, comics & graphic novels, kids and young adult literature.

Every store opening is an adventure - even more so in uncertain times -, but being flexible and sometimes taking a step into the unknown is deeply rooted in our company culture. By opening a store in Stadshart Amstelveen, we hope to reach out to an international booklover community in a part of the city where we haven't been present yet. We're so excited about this opportunity to grow!

Find us at Stadshart Amstelveen (Binnenhof 27, 1181 ZH Amstelveen), next to Footlocker and opposite The Athlete's Foot starting from Saturday June 20th, 10:00. We are looking forward to your visit!

Warm wishes,
the ABC staff

Celebrate the opening with us

Drop by on Saturday June 20th to join our festive opening!
