Many relationships have developed in his kiosk. Here you don't just shop, you talk and linger for a moment. For over 25 years Dimitrios Tsanakas has also been there for the people of nightlife. He runs one of the few kiosks in Dortmund that are open 24 hours a day. No wonder he experiences a lot. So a couple got to know each other at his kiosk, who is now married and has a baby. But he also hears of deaths and is invited to funerals. Because he is not only seen as a businessman or kiosk owner, but also as a friend.
"We also have a bit of a pastoral function here. That's what makes this place special and that's why it's always well visited", Tsanakas is pleased to say.
He likes to be a contact point and is happy that his interpersonal relationships are cultivated. Without such kiosks, the passionate kiosk owner is convinced, a piece of cultural heritage would be missing.
It is a known fact that every successful business location depends in particular on small companies and the courage of their founders.
