In 1991 the wealthy Van Der Valk family took over De Pier for the symbolic amount of one euro. But recently it was announced that De Pier failed to attract sufficient tourist/visitors so Van Der Valk has taken its hands from De Pier. In fact it's a shame that this happens to such a distinctive and historical building. But more things are not OK, like the renovation of the boulevard: a few weeks after completion there are already signs of damage, incredible! What a pity because the area is nice with many shops, attractions like Sea Life, the beach, the sea, especially in the summer it's fun to walk on the boulevard. But De Pier, I am afraid that it has lost its magic. And on the local television TV West it was told that demolition is way cheaper than renovation .... goodbey De Pier?
