Carrying heavy building materials is now a thing of the past. On july 06th 2020 Hornbach Nieuwegein opened the doors of its brand new Drive In. More than 400 quality products are available on an area of more than 4,000 m2. You just park your car or van in front of the shelf. It is the first Drive In DIY store for professionals and consumers in the region of Utrecht, the seventh for Hornbach.
“We are very proud”, says Kevin Lagas, branch manager of Hornbach Nieuwegein. “The Drive In is really an asset to do-it-yourselfers and construction professionals from Nieuwegein and the surrounding area. It is the same kind of hall as the ‘classic’ hardware store, but with wider paths. You can easily drive through and park your car or van in front of the shelf. You then load all the necessary materials and easily scan them with the app on your mobile phone. Finally, you drive past the cash register where you pay using that app and you can easily go back to your construction project. Shopping through the Drive In saves you time and you don’t have to carry heavy materials anymore.
Large materials, large stock
In the Hornbach Drive In, large and heavy building materials are available in particular, such as construction wood, insulation material, facing bricks, reinforcing steel, sand and gravel. Everything set up efficiently, so that you can load optimally. The total range includes 400 different articles. You will find the Drive In on the site of the DIY store, at Veldwade 3 in Nieuwegein. The Drive in is open seven days a week.
