Sunday shopping not popular in Greece

National Confederation of Hellenic Commerce (ESEE) president Vassilis Korkidis said on Sunday that the decision that allows retail stores to be open all year round, even ones that aren’t tourism destinations does not attract more consumption.

He said that less than two out of 10 retail stores opened on Sunday in areas that aren’t tourist areas and even some department stores remained closed.

Mobilizations against the Sunday retail openings were held in downtown Athens.
