It all began with a corner store

Depanneur or Dep is the name for convenience stores in Quebec and other French-speaking parts of Canada. The word derives from the French verb d├ępanner, meaning "to help out of difficulty" or "to troubleshoot".

After living in Montreal and moving back to Denmark, we realised that Copenhagen needed a Depanneur. From the beginning, the idea was to supply the neighbourhood with things that you need on a regular basis: Coffee, beer, snacks, canned tomatoes, good vibes and good times.

Quickly Depanneur became a regular go-to place for necessities and eventually the concept of troubleshooting grew into an assortment of goods created and curated by Depanneur. The goods include coffee, beer, juice and wine, but it is growing continuously and as randomly as the shelves in a convenience store. The latest project within the world of Depanneur is Depanneur Deli which opened in the spring of 2018.

The idea is to stay curious and keep introducing new goods and new versions of Depanneur's!
