Shopping in Greece is subjugated by large superstores, department stores, and online purchases. In spite of this you still might be able to find local BaIkalike (grocers shop) and so-called 'local and regal shops, antique relics of times past. If looking for gifts, you could try the local lace, jewels and metalwork, in addition to outstanding pottery, garments and woolen garments, rugs, leather goods and wines are few of the souvenirs you could consider yourself buying. Greece is also house to international companies that have opened copious franchises across the country. Some typical exemplars include grocery stores (the Spar) and department stores, as well as Swedish furniture stores, the German 'do-it-yourself' Praktiker chain, and also ALDI, the German discount grocery giant.
