Dutch department store Hema opened its first shop in Spain today. It was formally unveiled by company director Ronald Putting.

The Madrid location is the firm’s 670th storefront, with most shops located in the Netherlands, as well as Belgium, France, Germany and Luxembourg. The company is also expected to open a shop in England later this year.

An expansion to other Spanish cities is also planned.

Though Stroopwaffles and Jip and Janneke products could be seen on the shelves, the well-known Hema smoked sausages are not being sold in Spain at the moment.
