Shops closed on Sunday and Monday morning
Traditionally, shops and markets are closed all day Sunday and Monday mornings. Normal shopping hours are 09:00 or 10:00 to 18:00 (17:00 on Saturday) although some are now beginning to stay open later in the evenings and a majority of the shops on the main shopping streets are open on Sundays.
Late-night shopping on Thursday
There is late-night shopping (koopavond) on Thursdays until 21:00, when most shops on the main streets are open.
Shops open 24 hours a day
As of Spring 2016 opening restrictions for shops in Amsterdam Centrum (city centre, with the exception of the Red Light District) will be lifted for a two-year experiment. Shop owners can then decide for themselves when they are open.
The current rule is that stores between 22:00 and 6:00 in the morning should be closed, except for night shops.
