50 years ago, at the age of 25, Dirk Rossmann opened his drugstore, the “Cosmetics Market,” in Hanover. It was the first self-service drugstore in Germany, and he has since been regarded as the inventor and pioneer of this concept. The company is now one of Europe’s largest drug chains in 8 countries, with 56,500 employees and 4,361 stores. In 2021, the Rossmann Group generated sales of € 11.1 billion in Germany, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Albania, Kosovo, Spain and Turkey.
