Opening hours in supermarkets and retail stores will differ today, on Holy Saturday, May 1, the General Secretariat for Trade and Consumer Protection of the Ministry of Development and Investment announced.
In particular, grocery stores will be open today from 07:00 am to 19:00 pm. Retail stores may be open (recommended) from 07:00 am to 6:00 pm.
The ministry in its announcement indicates that in order to inform consumers and company management, opening hours are regulated by the provision of the law paragraph Δ1α / ΓΠ.οικ.26380 / 23-4-2021 of the Joint Ministerial Decision ΦΕΚ (Β1682), which applies only to grocery supermarkets.
Other food warehouses referred to in paragraph 22 of the table of paragraph 1B of Article 1 above ΚΥΑ are excluded.
We will remind, as “Russian Athens” wrote earlier, this is an important clarification regarding the opening hours of grocery stores.
Businesses have been categorized and set to open hours on holidays. Extended opening hours ONLY apply to supermarkets and NOT other grocery stores such as convenience stores, bakeries, butchers, fish shops, pastry shops, etc.
We wish you time to make all your purchases and have a good holiday!
