Winter sales begin next Monday
The winter sales begin in Greece next Monday and will continue until the end of February, while shops will also remain open on the first Sunday of the sales period, on January 17.
Several shops have started offering discounts as early as this week, however, and the National Confederation of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (ESEE) has sent out circulars giving instructions on how shops must operate during the sales.
This clarifies that discount items must display the old and new prices, and can optionally also display the percentage reduction. In the case that more than 60 pct of items on sale are offered at a discount, the shop window can display the discount offered or the range of discounts offered if more than one. Otherwise, displays must indicate that discounts are for selected items and the amount of the discount.
