Did I tell you that I originally come from a small village in Hessen? In this village we have a small store where you can just get EVERYTHING for house needs. And Kaufhaus Hillmer is a double of that home spot here in Hamburg Bergstedt.
First of all I was attracted by the outside of this house – I thought of my childhood looking at the ancient sign board and the shop windows. When I entered the store I felt a nice welcome and met a caring saleswoman asking for my needs who had an answer for all my wishes – how weird! You need nice bottles for homemade sirup? They have it. You need wool for knitting? They have it. You need baking forms in all shapes? They have it. You need scissors, greeting cards, measuring jugs, a special service for canning presents, clothespins, hand brooms or birdseeds? They will have it.
And in the unlikely case where they don’t have it they will get it for you. I am really happy to have this store around, even in those internet ordering days. It is a very nice and warm personal contact and you will get advice for most household questions.
