Selection of outlets in the Store Locator

The Visitor may use the Store Locator module in the Points of Sale (Marie Jo) or Store Locator (PrimaDonna) section of the Website to locate outlets in their neighbourhood that sell Van de Velde products, by entering a postcode or place name. A selection is made on the basis of distribution density and geographical location using the following automated criteria:

  • If 10 or more matches are found, all matches are listed and the search area is not extended.
  • If fewer than 10 exact matches are found, the original search area of 9 km is extended 5 km in all directions until 5 or more matches are found (including exact matches). The maximum search area is 50 km.
  • Search area distances are as the crow flies and include all postcode zones partly or wholly within that area. All outlets in the Van de Velde database with one of these postcodes will be listed, even if they do not strictly fall within the search area.

Van de Velde endeavours to include in its Store Locator only those outlets that carry a certain number of its products. Van de Velde also endeavours to provide an indication of the degree to which its products are available at a given outlet. Objective and consistent criteria are used to determine this, based on the breadth and depth of products sold. The precise nature of these criteria is communicated to Van de Velde’s customers, who may request at any time more details about the figures used to reach these conclusions. Bearing in mind the confidentiality of these figures, no precise figures or numerical or detailed evaluations of a specific outlet are provided on the basis of these criteria.


You undertake to compensate, indemnify and if requested by Van de Velde, defend Van de Velde, its directors, employees, shareholders, agents and representatives vis-à-vis all claims of third parties and/or costs (including but not limited to reasonable lawyer’s fees and charges) ensuing from the incorrect use of our Website, your infringement of these Terms or any other user’s infringement of an intellectual property right or any other right of a person or entity.
