German firm to buy Greek island for top customer

A German company that specializes in eyewear has offered to buy customers a Greek island if they buy 420,000 frames from the company.

Libuda Optic World, which manufactures and sells glasses, has offered to buy the island of Aghios Athanasios, with a land surface of around a hectare, in the Corinthian Gulf as part of a regular incentives program it offers its big customers.

A company spokesman told Kathimerini that the company has offered flights to space in previous programs and that the latest offer is based on Germans’ fondness for spending their vacations in Greece.

Real estate agents value the island at around 1.5 million euros. Libuda will also purchase the island for their customers if they buy 155,000 frames and contribute another 1 million euros toward the transaction.
