The Rotterdam branch of De Bijenkorf is one of the three main branches of the department store. The present building dates from 1956 and is a symbol of the rebuilding of the city of Rotterdam. It is with Amsterdam and The Hague one of the three "flagship stores", major chain stores. For a long time the only stores were in Amsterdam, the Hague and Rotterdam. A fourth location, Eindhoven was opened in 1969, the first outside the Randstad.
