Eindhoven has recently acquired a brand new bookshop that finally brings the modern book buying experience to our city. The Dutch bookshop chain Selexyz has opened an enormous new store in the city centre at Nieuwe Emmasingel 44.
The shop is housed in the basement and ground floor of the building known as the “Bruine Herr” or the Brown Gentlemen, which was originally the headquarter of the local electronics company Philips. A good selection of English fiction, along with some German, French and Spanish literature is available on the first floor. The basement is dedicated to specialist books in a wide variety of subjects with English titles included in each subject section. The basement café called the Coffeelovers provides a hospitable and welcoming space for a leisurely browse over a well- made cup of coffee. Altogether the new Selexyz is a welcome addition to the local shopping circuit.
