Supermarket chain Albert Heijn started life as a small grocery store. In 1887, Albert Heijn took over the store from his parents at the age of just 21. In this old grocery store, you can see the original furnishings and stock. The store shows how much shopping has changed in just over a century. The museum shop is located in a listed building, a typical example of a simple local wooden construction from the 19th-century. It is a combination of two different buildings. The front part of the shop was originally located on Oostzijde in Zaandam. The rearmost part is a house that originates from Kerkbuurt in Westzaan.
