    Tommy: Records and CD's 1

    by OlafS Updated Oct 27, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tilburg's nr. 1 record store is Tommy. Once they were elected second best record store of The Netherlands (Nr. 1 was Bullit in Eindhoven). This is not a shop for hitparade music, but they do have all styles of popmusic including lesser known artists as well as obscure ones. In the back is a nice and reasonably priced second-hand department.

    Sounds

    You don't always have to spend a lot of money - IF you know where you should go. For cd's and other forms of music, Sounds is THE place to be. It's specialised in alternative music. But that's a broad term there's rock, pop, metal, dance, jazz and world music. You can also find some limited editions here as well as vinyl and DVD's.

    What to pay: Well CD's are usually some 5 Euros cheaper than in other shops here. And also a great amount of sales.

    Atlas is a shop that only sells Travel Books and Maps. But if you think that makes for a very limites choice, you could be surprised. The store is totally packed with books. If you need any info on any place in the world this IS the place to go. And it's not even more expensive than in other bookshops.

    What to buy: Of course you're here to buy travel books.

    What to pay: Normally some 20 to 30 Euros. But there are a lot of sales and cheaper books as well.

    Shopping in Tilburg

    by ultchuk Updated Nov 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    part of the 'Heuvelstraat'

    All main shops with whatever you need you can find at the 'Heuvelstraat' or very nearby. When you are at the Heuvel you can walk down the Heuvelstraat. There are some new shopping centres or malls like the 'Emma passage' (near the Town Hall), but I'm sure you will notice. But make sure to check some of the little shops in the side streets. Cannot say the 'Heuvelstraat' is very special. It's just a shopping street where you can buy anything you need and you will find the same in any larger town. But still enjoy.
