The number of thrift stores in the Netherlands increased by 7 percent last year - the third year in a row that this industry grew. Retail turnover increased by 4 percent last year, and the amount of items collected increased by 5 percent , according to the sector association for thrift companies BKN, NU.nl reports.

The Christmas holidays last year in particular were "unprecedentedly busy" for thrift stores, according to BKN. The association attributes this to the VPRO television series Het succes van de kringloopwinkel.
