We believe that everyone feels that they want to decompress from (another one, to be honest…) difficult year and the best opportunity for this is the upcoming holiday season. Already many shopping malls have begun to decorate and prepare for our holiday shopping. In addition to online shopping, we could, perhaps for first time after long time, enjoy the big stores in all their glory and also strengthen the small shops in the centre and neighbourhoods that have been adding colour and variety to our shopping for many years.

The most important thing is to find clean accommodation, ready to welcome you and people to help you with your needs, so that to save time and get the most from the city. As you are here, that’s the first step. You can find our convenient furnished apartments which are available for booking on your desired dates of your stay as well as in Koukaki and Acropolis area as in the districts of Ampelokipoi and Ilisia which are located in the centre of town close to eveyrthing you want to visit and experience during your days in the capital (you will find out magic discount code at the end of the text).

But let’s see the days and hours of operation, which Sundays the shops will stay open and some activities we suggest to do, especially if you are visiting Athens for the first time with your children.

Open shops on Sundays

On November 27th shops will remain open Combined with Black Friday, which this year falls on November 25th, we have a whole Friday weekend ahead of us that we can take advantage of for great prices and deals. And as you know, some offers can only be found in person, in physical stores.

Specifically Sunday 27/11, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. the stores of The Mall Athens, Golden Hall, Athens Metro Mall, Avenue Mall, McArthurGlenn, Athens Heart Mall will be open.
