Greeks to Get One Shopping Trip Per Day, Minister Says

ATHENS — Talking about the opening of retail trade the following Monday, Trade and Consumer Protection Secretary General Panagiotis Stamboulidis on Thursday clarified on Skai TV that shoppers will only be allowed one shopping trip per day.

"We can send only one message a day and one our name and surname. The reply to the second message will be a refusal," he said. Movements between municipalities for shopping will also be permitted on week days, provided an appointment has been booked in advance by phone or online, and people must carry their identity card or passport on shopping trips, he added.

He also clarified that payment when picking up goods ordered by the click-away (click and collect) method must use cards and not cash, while shop in shops, malls and discount outlets will not be reopening at this time.


ATHENS - Acknowledging disappointing results in the European Parliament elections for New Democracy, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said there won’t be early elections in Greece and dismissed any idea of taking New Democracy further right.
