Vroom & Dreesmann (also known as V&D) is a Dutch chain of department stores founded in 1887 by Willem Vroom and Anton Dreesmann. The first V&D store opened in Weesperstraat in Amsterdam. V&D now has over 62 branches throughout the Netherlands.

All V&D stores sell designer clothing & shoes, jewellery, cosmetics, a wide selection of books, CD & DVD home entertainment, electrical goods, stationery, cards & posters, furniture, homewares and a selection of delicatessen. The average V&D store also features one or more restaurants, a travel agent and a Postbank ATM. Larger branches also have an in-store bakery and full Postbank branch.

V&D is a subsidiary of Sun Capital Partners since the end of 2010. Before 2010, it was owned by Maxeda.

On 8 September 2007 Vroom & Dreesmann introduced a new logo, replacing the old red and blue logo after 10 years.
