Renovating, with the truck off and on to move and blasting through in the evenings was not for nothing; the end result of the new HEMA in the Brouwerstraat in Arnhem is impressive. The staff is proud: “A lot of people say they thought it would be beautiful. But not so beautiful. We worked very hard!”
What immediately strikes you when you enter is how spacious the store is. There are large aisles and the various departments are spread over a large area. Immediately upon entering you will also see the counter with food. It is located on the right side of the new HEMA in Arnhem. You can get a quick snack there, such as the well-known HEMA hot dogs or smoothies. Take them with you or eat them at the high tables in the window.
You will find a cash register in every corner of the store. Whether it is a self-scanner, a cash register with the trusted HEMA staff or a photo desk, you can pay for your things quickly and easily almost anywhere
Just like you old trusted HEMA at the Rijnstraat there are escalators in the new branch again. With this you can easily reach the first floor. This time there is a big staircase in between. For example, if you want to achieve your step goal.
All floors in the new HEMA in Arnhem are accessible for disabled people and people in wheelchairs. From the ground floor to the first floor they can take the elevator and the restaurant is accessible via a lift that fits the wheelchair. Handy, because that way he doesn’t have to go down the stairs. Find more wheelchair accessible restaurants in Arnhem here.
Just like the old HEMA on the Rijnstraat, the branch in the Musiskwartier has a large supermarket with a fresh department. You can get wines, fresh meats and all kinds of other foods here. Fortunately, the shelf with HEMA smoked sausages is also well filled, because that was different a while ago.
Have you ever walked through HEMA, looking for something specific, but didn’t know where to find it? That is now a thing of the past. It is clearly indicated where to find which department. And with fancy luminous letters. Buy tea towels? Look up where the ‘kitchen’ department is located and you’ll find them in no time.
Perhaps the best thing about the new HEMA in Arnhem is the restaurant. It is large, you can get good food and drinks and the interior has been completely renovated! There are many seating areas, cozy niches and large tables that you can easily fit in with a family. If you want to work or study for a while, you can open your laptop here. There are even power outlets available.
Old and familiar at HEMA are of course the toilets with a person who regularly cleans them. You will also find them on the first floor in this new branch. A visit to the toilet costs 70 euro cents. You get a fresh and clean toilet in return.
