Shops opened on Sunday and the two following

Small retail shops opened from 11:00 until 18:00 on Sunday, while chain and department stores remained open until 20:00 to help consumers shop for the holidays.

They will also be open at the same times on the two following Sundays, on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

The Private Employees of Greece Federation declared a nationwide strike and a protest rally at the McArthurGlen retail park on Sunday, in support of shop staff that are being required to work for 30-40 days continuously for yet another year – many of them without a day off or day of rest, or even the 75 pct additional pay for working Sundays.
