The location is excellent and the rent – zero, for now. Smack in the middle of the centre of the German city of Bremen, three friends have opened a sustainable department store with products that are produced fairly, recycled and free of plastic.

There is also a cafe and room for events in the space, which measures about 600sq m in the middle of Bremen's pedestrian area.
