Currently there’s 20% off on everything at Munich’s last remaining specialized vegan supermarket in the Bavarian capital. The “Veganz” store Baldestraße and the next door vegan bistro “Goodies” will close on Saturday, August 13, abendzeitung-muenchen.de reports today, August 8, 2016.
Veganz founder Jan Bedrack blames the poor financial performance of the store to the unfavourable location with few parking places and bad connection to public transport. The store in Munich is part of the Veganz chain which includes three stores in Berlin, six more in the rest of Germany and stores in Vienna, Austria and stores in the Czech Republic.
A spokesperson of the store pointed out that the closing of the Veganz store at the Baldestraße doesn’t mean that they have lost interest in operating a store in the Bavarian capital. There are plans to return as soon as fitting space is found in Munich.
The closing of the last vegan store in Munich doesn’t mean that Vegans living in Munich are going to have to starve. Vegan products can be found at store chains, such as dm Drogeriemarkt, Tengelmann and Edeka, to name a few. Also Veganz products can still be found in Munich at the Basic stores and at the Holzinger store at the Theresienhöhe.
