And Donner at the Coolsingel!
In the past Donner merged with other branches under the name Selexyz Polare that went bankrupt in 2013. Some dedicated employees joined forces and started a successful crowdfunding campaign to save the shop.
Not only the original name is back but also the bookstore. Relocated to the former ABN Amro bank building at Coolsingel. A post war monument that was empty for many years and now hosts Donner.
They offer a wide range of specialized books, magazines and a side programme with signing sessions. Go browse and buy books, postcards, magazines, music, meet for coffee or lunch in café Donner. There’s also a department for antique books, van der Heijde sheet music, and a piano inviting everyone who can play a tune or two.
In the back you can get a good cup of coffee, a zip of wine sandwiches or great cakes.
