The store is located in a ‘diverse’ area and as such has low demand for German traditions. So low in fact that they stopped offering any Christmas items and decorations.
One member of staff told a client:
“We are a Muslim business, we don’t want to sell Christmas articles”.
The spokesperson for the company scrambled to clarify that they are not a Muslim store but that it is right that they stopped selling it in that branch due to ‘local conditions’. Christians make up less than a third of Northern Dortmund, where the store is located.
