Kiosks are a longstanding tradition in the Ruhr Metropolis and are invaluable to local residents. Tucked into side streets or off main roads, they are at times able to fulfil spontaneous needs.

Larger shops and stores nowadays open longer while filling stations provide many goods outside normal shopping hours. Even so, these convenience stores normally offer drinks, alcohol, snacks and a small selection of edible items to their faithful clients.
