to the Right of the deli and cheese counter, a drawer, they call you the "secret" drawer. Therein, vanilla sugar, colorful sprinkles, and custard powder, all individually wrapped in plastic. Not unusual in a normal supermarket. However, in the Nahkauf in sand harlanden, a District of Abensberg, the little plastic bags recently, the great exception. Customers get the products from the drawer, only on demand.
73 years, Rita Forstner, 86, behind the counter of "Boder". Since about six months the Store now belongs to her granddaughter and Luisa Brummer, 23, has turned the Store of the Granny quite: From the "Boder" has become the "Boderei" and the earlier light blue bar is now lime green. Probably the biggest change, however, is that most of the products are sold without packaging. In addition, the food is mostly organic and mostly regional, wherever possible, both.
That there is still baking powder, rusks and rice pudding out of the bag, is a conscious decision by Luisa Brummer. "We don't want to ask too much of our older customers," she says. The Boderei for many of the older sand harlandener the only way, nor even to shop. She didn't want to be too strict and have been products in the range, the actually fit into the sustainability concept is based. "We make the balancing act," says Brummer, who wears her blond hair as Dreadlocks.

The young woman has already seen much of the world. But that is exactly why the trained as a visual Marketing designer conscious, to come back home and stay. "My roots are san here," says Brummer. You have loved the Download of the grandma as a small child. To live in the peaceful sand harlanden, where time sometimes seems to stand still, and to go with the time, which is no contradiction for you.
On the country of Luisa Brummer to coincide with your hair style and your ideas. She's not the Luisa by the Boderei, I heard a long time ago - up to about twelve kilometres away, Kelheim, says Brummer. From as far as the customers come in your packaging-free supermarket shop. Even grandma Rita is excited about how much more customers of the Store for the Latest draws. Unlike in so many other Bavarian villages where the small supermarkets number of not have to close, because the Load is worth, financially, to be running in sand harlanden for a few months, the business really well.
in addition to a young entrepreneur, Luisa Brummer is also a mom Bärbel Brummer, 54, in the Store and helps her daughter. Grandma Rita is no longer behind the counter, but about Noon, the food for the family is on the table. Your kitchen, the whole family lives adjacent to the Store, in the same house; in the hallway, the oven, the pretzels, the sold Luisa Brummer in the Boderei, baked.
Since opening in last September, you have the selection of unpackaged foods already tripled, says Brummer. She was even surprised at how well customers accept the new concept. Many who had initially been a little skeptical, would have long been free to bring their own container for filling the food. "I heid a mei Bixn raised," even your oldest customer, a 94-Year-old, recently proudly announced. In the home brought in Canning jar, or the Tupperbox homemade pasta with eggs from hens from the area, cheeses and cold meats from the Region, or so-called Bavarian rice, a mixture of different types of ancient grains such as Emmer, Einkorn and Spelt.

If someone has forgotten his glass at home, it is even more tragic, because family and friends have already begun months before the opening, pickles and to collect jam jars and rinse. Grandma Rita has wondered at that time what projects the young people with all the glasses. But actually, it was as before, since they have the sugar and the flour for their customers, yet bottled up, she says.
in addition to the many long-lasting food there is fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as Newspapers, books, handmade Soaps, menstrual cups and bread-and-butter boxes made of bamboo in the Boderei. In the drinks Department, Beers and juices from the Region. Who'll bring the box of water with the Walker home, the ride, the drinks, Luisa, Brummer says quickly to the front door. And should it happen that someone forgets the milk or the coffee, he could ring the bell after closing time - at home, someone always is Yes, actually.
Brummer, it is important that your customers feel in the Boderei. Instead of quick to shop, should people be able to take your time. In a corner there are occasions, therefore, a couple of seats, there is also the possibility in peace to drink a Cup of coffee. Children can pack in the game corner fun while the parents of the milk in the shopping basket. The shopping baskets are in the Boderei colorful and are made from plastic waste. Brummer collects the plastic waste that is still not completely avoided. You regularly for further processing to a woman in the neighboring village, which crochets from plastic and the baskets of leftovers. Recycling and Upcycling is the motto.
Because the shopping without packaging is for the most still unfamiliar, wants to offer Brummer in the future, guided tours of the Boderei. The idea is you come here as a mother-and-child group had asked, says Brummer. Your personal contact with your customers is important, and therefore almost always behind the counter. Everyone who come in the Store, and am asked for his name, all the be on familiar terms with, she says. "I know my own suffering," says Brummer. After six months, Brummer know, therefore, who drinks his coffee without milk, and who needs on the weekend, how many rolls for Breakfast. Pre-order can share them via whatsapp message.
