BERLIN — Speculation is again heating up that Germany’s two main department store chains, Karstadt and Kaufhof, are heading toward a merger.
Karstadt, a division of the financially strained Arcandor Group, operates 120 doors in Germany with a workforce of about 30,000. The Metro Group’s 113 Galeria Kaufhof department stores in Germany employ about 25,000.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
