A snap business opportunity when the market demands for … snowballs. A local man in Xanthi, took advantage of the snowfall and decided to sell snowballs to the lazy locals willing to start a snow-war without much of an effort.
The smart businessman loaded his farm truck with snow and started to sell snowballs at a not so very spot price of half a euro.
He drove his truck to the main street of the town in north-eastern Greece, waiting for customers.
This rare business opportunity was of short life, though.
The ‘vendor” saw his products melt, the goods that would provide him with a small day profit disappeared within a few hours.
