Our brotherhood

Meet Madhya

We drove off to Utrecht, to have a chat with our Dstrezzed store manager Madhya, who runs the store located on Lange Elisabethstraat 8 in Utrecht.


What brought you to Utrecht?
When I was a kid, I used to move a lot for my dad’s work. We eventually moved to a small town outside of Utrecht. I choose to move to Utrecht when I was done studying in Amsterdam because it is the gateway to all cities in the Netherlands.
Nothing is far away if you are in Utrecht!

What is the perfect store experience for you?
That is when I get to know a customer so well, that it feels more like we are two friends shopping together. We want people to feel welcome in our store as if they are visiting a good friend.

The best piece of advice you can give to any customer?
Never buy your jeans too big! It should always feel a bit tight in the beginning. Nothing is worse than wearing jeans that are too big.

Utrecht is scattered with hidden culinary gems!

Favorite places in Utrecht?
