Bes Tobacco, Souvenirs & Toys has existed in Egmond aan Zee for more than 100 years and was once started by Engelbertus van Pel and his wife, they took it over to Aaf Verbrugge van Pel and her husband Piet Verbrugge until just after the war (1950).

Starting in 1977, their daughter Carla Verbrugge and her husband Piet Bes then took over the store. They made the store what it is.

Until 2004 Carla and Piet ran the store because then it was time for Geert Bes & his wife Heidi Bes Stuifbergen he is the current operator of Bes Tobacco, Souvenirs and Toys.

At the Bes family it is always cozy, especially in the winter it can get quite cozy in the office. Geert & Heidi live above the store and have been married since 2004.

We are an outlet for the State Lottery in our store, but also sell phone cards, refrigerated soft drinks, kites, sunglasses, seashells and souvenirs.
