A standard variety with some surprises: Gorinchem, regional shopping centre
Gorinchem has the function of regional shopping centre and attracts people from an area that takes roughly a 25 (to the West and North) to 40 (to the East and South) kilometers in it's surroundings. The main shopping streets are in the old town centre, for example: Hoogstraat, Gasthuisstraat, Grote Markt, Molenstraat, Kraansteeg en Botersteeg. The shops are - besides the usual - sometimes quite surprising. Look for these little funny places in the alleys running away from the main streets.
