Greek Supermarkets Allowed to Sell Blankets, Winter Goods During Lockdown

November 18, 2020

ATHENS – With autumn deepening and the onset of winter on the horizon, Greek supermarkets who had been allowed to sell only food stuffs can open their aisles for cold weather products including blankets, radiators and slippers now.

That came with predictions of colder weather and rain settling on the country after the New Democracy government said that during a second lockdown aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 that the stores couldn't sell items such as 

clothing, toys, electronics and furniture.

That was done to prevent the supermarkets from having an unfair competitive advantage over retail stores that also sell those products but must stay closed until Nov. 30 under the closing of non-essential businesses, although online sales are okay, and people now without those items can get them at the markets.
