Our retail division is proudly building on its long heritage. The family's entrepreneurial DNA, which originated in retail and has matured over the years, lives on in Nieuwgeluk. The family history began over 125 years ago with Blokker, and retail is still the common thread today.

Xenos makes retail fun

In 2019, Nieuwgeluk acquired the adventurous Xenos retail chain from Blokker Holding. This acquisition is a valuable addition to our Investments and Real Estate activities and corresponds perfectly with our modern and future-oriented vision of retail.

Xenos (Greek for stranger) refers to ‘strange’ and to ‘far away countries’. Every item in the shop is just that little bit different. 

Team Xenos,

Through the years, Xenos has grown into a chain of 150 shops where consumers can buy affordable home decor products, household goods, gifts and food items.

We work closely with the Xenos management team and have the ambition for Xenos to be the most ‘refreshingly different’ shop of the Netherlands.

Team Xenos,
