Techniek Nederland asks State Secretary Mona Keijzer of Economic Affairs and Climate to make a collection desk possible at electronics stores. Customers can visit there by appointment to pick up ordered products.
According to chairman Doekle Terpstra, this relaxation of the store closure is necessary to prevent permanent economic damage.
Electronics stores are currently allowed to deliver products that have been ordered online at home. However, picking up products from a branch (‘click & collect’) is not allowed. According to Techniek Nederland, this creates an uneven playing field.
Terpstra: ‘Electronics retailers are in dire straits. With responsible relaxation, we prevent companies from collapsing or having to rely more heavily on government support measures. ‘
The store closure is driving more and more consumers to large, foreign platforms for their electronics purchases. The longer it takes, the more likely those customers will not return after the pandemic. Amazon already has a 7 percent share in Dutch electronics sales.
