Intertoys | As personal as possible

People in Dordrecht who place orders via the Intertoys webshop automatically arrive at the shop in the city centre. You don't really notice anything until you get a call from one of the employees. When do you want the order delivered? Does it have to be packed? Do you need batteries or advice? They can meet all your requirements. The same day, or the day after at the latest, one of the team members will deliver the order to your home. Of course, completely coronaproof and free of charge from € 15,-. You can also order or ask for advice via the number 078 614 38 26, which can be reached via Whatsapp or by telephone. The starting point of Intertoys is to make it as cosy as possible during this period.

Grandparents who order a gift for a grandchild are even sent a photo or video of the moment when the gift reaches the child. In this way, they can still be there a little bit. What is particularly popular during the lockdown: games, puzzles and the new Lego (which, by the way, is also great fun for older people!).

Sportcentrum Dordrecht | Staying fit in Corona time

Leisurewear and running shoes are definitely doing better online than before the lockdowns at Sportcentrum Dordrecht. Now that we are all home much more and can only exercise outside, the clothing had better be comfortable, right? On the website, you will find plenty of choice in sportswear, running shoes and accessories. Sportcentrum Dordrecht is fortunate in the contacts they have with sports clubs, associations and schools for whom they provide printed teamwear and bags.

The added value of the Sports Centre for 41 years is its expertise, hospitality and accessibility. You can park right outside the door and customers always come back, simply because there is plenty of time to test out new football boots or korfball shoes. That's not possible right now, but that's how it is. What there is time for: exercising at home or in the open air. Hang in there and keep in shape! And do you happen to need something for that? Consider also Sportcentrum Dordrecht.

Pieters | Everything for the home cook

The team at Pieters | Keuken, Koken en Wonen clearly sees from the online orders that Dordrechters have discovered cooking during the lockdowns. The number of orders placed via the webshop has increased enormously. In addition, the helpful and experienced staff do everything in their power to help the (mostly familiar) customers, and nothing is too much trouble. Visiting a client with six frying pans to compare? At Pieters they do it. Advice on a smoker? By sending photos back and forth and via facetime you can work it out together.

Nevertheless, Pieters prefers to receive its customers, and hopefully soon again, in its beautiful spacious monumental building: the medieval Nieuwkerk. Last 14 January 2021, they were located here for exactly 25 years. Not a celebration, but at Pieters they remain positive and also have a tip. Now that we're home so much, wouldn't it be great to be able to make a barista-worthy cup of coffee ourselves? At Pieters, you have plenty of choice!
