Georgiadis: Santa's basket was 'a good idea' and 'worked'
Earlier, Georgiadis visited the open-air street market in Aghia Paraskevi, Attica, noting that consumers can find low prices and good quality in the street markets.
Regarding 'Santa's Basket' - a measure designed to ensure access to more affordable toys ahead of Christmas - he noted that it was very popular in all toys shops, adding that originally the idea had been to create a basket of roughly 100-150 products. "But now they are approaching 3.000 and this is impressive," he added.
Georgiadis also said that there has been no increase in prices from week to week but a number of price reductions in various toy store chains. "There is competition, as in the 'household basket', and I feel very happy that we contributed with this initiative so that our smaller but also slightly older friends can buy toys at better prices. It turns out that it was a good idea, it worked," he said.
