ATHENS — The Development and Investments Ministry has reacted positively to a proposal by retailers for reopening on the "click in shop" method, head of the Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (ESEE) Giorgos Karanikas said on Monday after a meeting with the minister.

Karanikas the hope the decision to allow the reopening this way is implemented shortly.
