A little Trabant history

In 2006 we were told that we had to move out because the estate agents next door wanted to take over our location. We eventually found a new location, just across the road in Markveien. We called the new shop Robot. A few days after we signed the contact for Robot the landlord of Trabant told us the new tenant had gone bankrupt and that he would let us stay for another year. It meant having two shops in the same street, but we decided to give it a go and hired some employees. Both shops were a great success so we decided to ask the landlord of Trabant for an extension on our contract. It was at this point that he told us that our new neighbours Nille wanted to take over little Trabant so they could make their store bigger. We have realised that being a little store it was very easy to be pushed around by the chain stores.
