THE ONE & ONLY DELI
IN SPICE BAZAAR

Cankurtaran Gıda is in service for more than half a century in the very midst of Istanbul. It is located in “Spice Bazaar”, the most infamous and historic bazaar of Istanbul. Cankurtaran Gıda was established in 1946 by Mehmet Tuncer (the father), and it is the only deli remaining in this historic complex.

The vastness and variety of quality products displayed in a 30 m² store, is appealing to everyone passing by. Immaculately placed wall-type multipack cooler cabinets provide just the right amount of intimacy between the customer and the product stand without distancing the product and the customer by any kind of separation. The shop assistant standing on the same side with the customer also makes the shopping experience nicer and easier.

SHOPPING EXPERIENCE IN A HISTORIC ENVIRONMENT

To bring out the historic vibes of the site, the plaster on the stone walls in the entrance had been stripped off and with the right amount of front facade lighting, historic texture of the building is accentuated even more. The lighting that focuses on products only, creates a dramatic sensation so that the customers shopping in the store feel like they took a tour in the unique history of the city.
