Family business DEVO is a typical example of a store you want to visit as a tourist. There’s no store like it in other cities!
DEVO is more than 84 years old, and is located in the beautiful historical center of Sneek at Het Grootzand No. 20. The store is situated next to an alleyway, and is no less than 70 meters deep. As a result, half the store is on the Grootzand street, and the part at the back is on the De Singel. Het Grootzand still has a canal, while De Singel no longer has one. Until the 30’s, goods were supplied via cargo ships, called De Skûtsjes here in Friesland. The back of DEVO is a warehouse, where the goods were hoisted up from the ships in the old days. A beautiful historical building.
Devo is spacious and organized, with a huge range of products, for every taste and every budget. From household linen to the latest trends in knitting wool and hobby articles. Buttons, zippers, sewing thread, scissors, crochet yarn and knitting wool. You can also choose from many postcard templates and stamps and our wide selection of stockings and socks. We also offer a wide collection of nightwear, duvet covers, fitted sheets, quilts, towels, tea towels and typical Frisian articles. And we also sell a lot of underwear, including the brands Sloggi, Schiesser, Ten Cate, HL and Beerens.
Orderly but also very cozy, with friendly staff, and if you’re looking for something, we can find it for you. Because at Devo, service is exceptionally normal.
So, if you find yourself in Sneek, DEVO is definitely worth a visit.
