Meanwhile, according to the Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (ESEE), Black Friday – for the third year running – is a one-day promotional action marking the start of the holiday season. Participation by retail outlets is optional and products on sale must clearly state old and new reduced prices.
ESEE President Vassilis Korkidis said that Greece has managed to extend Black Friday into a week full of sales. Indicatively the Greek retail market has lost 40 percent of its turnover since 2008.
