Summer sales in Athens begin on Monday, traders announce


Summer sales will begin on Monday, July 11, and run all the way through August 31 in a bid to boost sluggish commerce, the Athens Traders’ Association said on Tuesday.

Shops in the capital will also have the option to open on Sunday, July 17, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., according to the association’s recommendation.

Shopkeepers are obliged by law to display both the pre-discount and the discount price of every item on sale, though they do not have to indicate the percentage of the discount. If they do so, it has to correspond to the prices on the tag.
