Abstract:Cross-border shopping is a topic that was studied intensively by several researchers for many years. The researchers focused on different areas such as the economy or socio-cultural to examine cross-border shopping. However, this thesis examines the impact of the Covid-19 related restrictions on cross-border shopping based on the past work from the researchers in this area. The research question of this thesis is "To what extent do the Covid 19 related restrictions imposed during the first wave influenced the cross-border shopping at the Dutch-German border region based on the case of Bocholt?”. In order to answer the research question, three sub-questions were raised to answer the research question and data were collected by documents and the "Stadtmarketing of the city of Bocholt". This thesis shows that the impact of the restrictions imposed by the European Union and the German government had a significant impact on cross-border shopping.
