Blankets, coats and slippers return to supermarket shelves

The products that will return to supermarket shelves as of this morning include slippers, sheets, blankets, duvets, heating appliances, coats and plug protectors, among others.

Minister Adonis Georgiadis told Parliament a major supermarket chain unjustifiably raised the prices of basic food commodities when the lockdown was announced.
