Wild in the aisles! Here’s the store that’s a supermarket by day and a nightclub by night

Ever fancied a dance while browsing through the corn flakes? One Dutch supermarket is offering shoppers the chance to go wild in the aisles – after opening up after hours as a NIGHTCLUB.

Dirk, a supermarket in Amsterdam, opened its doors to partygoers last month in honour of a flyer that has gone down in Dutch folklore.

According to the legend, an anonymous flyer was left at Albert Heijn, a major Dutch supermarket, three years ago asking for the supermarket to open up as a nightclub in the evening.

Nothing came of the flyer but the idea lived on and was finally realised at the Dirk supermarket in Amsterdam last month.

Ady Van de Plas, a 45-year-old photographer and fashion writer who snapped pictures at the event, said:

“It was brilliant. There were loads of students and party-goers dressing up and it was a really good atmosphere.

“People were shopping and partying at the same time. There must have been a couple of people who’d gone to do their shopping and just decided to have a dance while they were there.

“It was weird. People were wandering off to buy biscuits and then going back to the dancefloor.

“I thought it was a great idea, it was a right laugh and it’s made quite an impact in Holland.

“Maybe it could set a trend – there were people dancing in the aisles as well as on the portable disco floors and the bars were set up at the checkout.”
