The Gymzaal, our main location, closed its doors temporarily for its long-awaited renovation. Fortunately, for the Wednesday market and our package-free shop on Saturday, we have found our home in the Helena at Helena van Doeverenplantsoen 3, 2512 ZB, The Hague. This former school building is on the edge of the city centre and the Schilderswijk district and about 2 kilometres away from the Gymzaal. The give away shop will temporarily close its doors and take the items to the Emmaus
On Saturday 10 June, the package-free shop had it´s final opening in the Gymzaal. And on 14 June, the last market took place in the same location. On 17 June, the packing-free shop opened its doors at the Helena and on 21 June, the first market took place there. The opening hours will remain the same for both the package-free shop and the market.
It is not yet known exactly how long the renovation will take. We will keep you updated on the progress via our website and socials.
Curious about what will change in the Gymzaal? Then read the Gymzaal’s newsletter , which also contains a floor plan of the renovation plans. You can also subscribe to the newsletter via the Gymzaal’s website and stay informed.
Did you know that the Volkskeuken has also moved into the Helena. Every Wednesday you can join them for a delicious meal. Find more information here .
We hope to see you soon in the Helena!
