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.
Maxeda owned V&D since Maxeda was founded in 1999. Previously, V&D was owned by Vendex which merged into Maxeda.
On 8 September 2007 Vroom & Dreesmann introduced a new logo, replacing the old red and blue logo after 10 years.
- The rise of the Internet with online shopping.
- Cheaper brick and mortar stores such as the Swedish H&M, Irish Primark, and Dutch Zeeman that compete successfully for V&D's market share.
- A lack of clear identity versus these more affordable stores and the more exclusive ones, such as De Bijenkorf.
- The sale of the V&D department stores (i.e. the real estate), increasing the warehouse's operational costs.
