Mid-Season Sales to Begin on May 3

ATHENS – The mid-season sales for retail shops will begin on Tuesday, May 3, and shops will have the option to open the following Sunday, on May 8.

“Despite the fact that mid-season sales have so far offered nothing special to the retailer and the consumer, however, exceptionally this year, in a period of high inflation, they are presented as an opportunity for cheap purchases. Thus, on Tuesday begins a 15-day sales period counter to the “imported” price spike and in support of family budgets, which will last until May 15 and is suitable for smart purchases. The shops and all the retail companies are expected to offer a wide variety of seasonal products at lower prices and, as always, with the best service to their customers, but also respect for the health protection measures,” the president of Commercial and Industrial Piraeus Chamber, Vassilis Korkidis, said on Thursday in a statement.
