Today, Monday, July 8, we start regular summer discounts, which will last until Saturday 31 August.
As the Athens Chamber of Commerce (EES) informs, the stores may remain open on Sunday, July 14, 2019, with an opening hours of 11:00 – 18:00 proposed by the Athens Traders Association.
According to the EES, commercial companies should pay particular attention to:
The double price, ie the old (deleted) and the new price of all items sold at a discount, is mandatory.
It is also permitted to display and commercial communication of a discount rate.
If a reduced price is offered at more than 60% of all items sold, the demonstration of the discount rate is required, so it should be recorded in the store’s store and in any other commercial communication.
In the case of different discount rates per product category, the range of the percentage provided (“from ….% to ….%”) should be indicated.
In any other case it will be stated that the discounts refer to selected species with reference to the respective percentage.
The shopkeepers should be able, in case of control, to prove that the old selling price on the billboard corresponds to reality.
On the occasion of the beginning of the summer discount period, ESA President Stavros Kafounis said:
“From the prosperity of the indicators it is necessary to move to the well-being of the people. In the first half of 2019 due to economic asphyxia, it was the worst period of recent years for all commercial enterprises. Although great discounts, combined with the variety and quality of the merchandise, will be an incentive for the even modest rise in the market we all need. ”
