Supermarkets in Greece will operate with new working hours, following a decision by Development and Investment Minister Adonis Georgiadis on Thursday. The new scheme goes into effect on upcoming Saturday.
The new working hours will be in effect from April 25 until May 9, 2020.
The new working hours will be:
Monday to Friday 07:00 a.m. – 09:00 p.m.
Saturday 07:00 a.m. – 08:00 p.m.
Greece has changed, in fact extended, the working hours of supermarkets several times since the pandemic outbreak in order to avoid the crowding that occurred when Greeks rushed to panic buys..
The government is preparing to start gradually lifting the lockdown restrictions as of May 4.
