On April 25, 1896, Jacob Blokker and his wife, Saapke Kuiper, set up the cheap iron and wood store in Hoorn. The shop, at Breed 22, grew rapidly and expanded at Breed with several buildings, including number 12. In 1923, an old building on the corner of Breed and Veemarkt was purchased in which a, for that time, capital shop popped up.
From the 1930s, their four sons opened various other stores in the Randstad under the name Gebroeders Blokker. That tradition was continued by their descendants, as a result of which Blokker grew into a national, and ultimately international, retail chain. In recent years, Blokker has repaired or reconstructed the historic shopfront in several locations of the premises in which their stores are located, including Hoogstraat in Rotterdam and Hoogstraat in Wageningen.
