"At GDR (German Democratic Republic = East Germany) time we had a production company meaning we only delivered our products to supermarkets. We did not have our own shop. Because of the fall of the wall, west German companies took over the east German supermarkets and we lost our clients. We then decided to open our own store here and sell our products here."

"Some parts of former east Germany are well developed, others not. But there is no fast development of the economy in this region to expect any more. Smaller developments are possible but further developments of the east German economy situation is depending on if and when the general situation in Germany changes."

With their country still in political limbo in the wake of recent elections, Germans are preparing to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the reunification of their once divided nation.
The anniversary falls on Monday 3 October.
Now only small sections of the Berlin Wall - built in 1961 - remain, preserved as a memorial to the Cold War era.
In 1961, Wolliner Strasse was divided into East and West, separating neighbourhoods and families.
Today the street is located in what is now the centre of Berlin.
A lot has changed for the people living on the street.
On the side of the road located in the former East Germany, old buildings have been renovated, and the area now looks smarter than the former West side of the road.
This bakery in former East Germany dates back to 1936 and has prospered since the Berlin Wall came down in November 1989.
Reunification brought with it new opportunities and investment, and a café was added to the shop.
Driving from the east to the west part of the street, only a green line - former No Man's land - remains as a sign of the division.
But Germany is still coping with the effects of reunification, and economically former East Germany is still struggling, with the jobless rate at 17.6 percent in September, compared to 9.5 percent in the west.
And Karl Brenke, of the German Institute of Economic Research, believes this figure will show little improvement in the short term.
The jobless rate has been at the centre of protracted talks by Germany's political parties as they attempt to form a coalition government two weeks after indecisive elections.
