Discounters continue to swim against the current: Action, Op=Op, Big Bazar, and Prijsmepper. Since 2012, when the country was in the midst of an economic crisis, the number of shops in the Netherlands has decreased by 5 per cent, but discounters have witnessed an increase of 75 per cent. ‘They all aim to grow’, explains marketing professor Peter Verhoef in the NOS news broadcast, ‘and we - the consumers - have discovered where we can find inexpensive goods. Even though the crisis is behind us, we still keep buying at these places. That will not change.’
