SHOP OWNER ROUND 40
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO OPEN YOUR OWN STORE?
Working in wholesale for a long time, the opportunity of having retail, too, seemed like a good idea. The thought was to strengthen my finances whilst selling what I like at the same time.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE STORE LOCATION AND ITS HISTORY?
Round 40 is a small store located in the historical centre of Athens right next to the Cathedral. The building dates back to 1936
WHAT ARE YOUR DAILY CHALLENGES?
To maintain the balance between what I personally like and what sells.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CUSTOMERS? WHAT ARE THEY LOOKING FOR?
My customers are mostly urban, street and minimalist style kind of people, with a high awareness for quality.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH A BAG OF OURS?
My first encounter with QWSTION happened at a trade show in Paris about 7 or 8 year ago. My very own weekender bag is from that era.
