A survey done by Visa Europe showed some very interesting facts about the Greeks habits. Based on the research, Greeks prefer to go grocery shopping on Saturdays but depending on the age they go in different times: 40% of consumers between 25 and 34 years old prefer visiting the supermarkets in the afternoon and the older people – over 65, prefer to grocery shop in the morning.

The quietest time in the supermarkets is around noon, because 80% of Greeks prefer to buy food products in the afternoon. If you don’t want to wait in line when you go shopping for clothes, then you should go in the late afternoon, because 80% of the surveyed said that they like shopping in the early afternoon.

47% of consumers prefer to do their grocery shopping from supermarkets and 45% from smaller neighborhood stores. The data from the cloth market is quite different. The malls usually dominate the market but the survey shows something else – 44% say that they prefer shopping from big stores and 29% buy their clothes from neighborhood stores. Only 23% of the surveyed prefer shopping in the malls.

Interesting is the social dimension of shopping – women prefer buying their clothes alone – 49%, or with a friend – 24%. Men are not the perfect company for shopping, because only 14% of women would choose to go shopping with a man. On the other hand, it seems that men trust the choice of their other half, because 42% of them believe that women are the best company when shopping for clothes.

In comparison to consumers in other European countries, Greeks prefer paying cash – 94% when grocery shopping and 87% when shopping for clothes. In Great Britain, consumers admit the safety advantages of shopping with a credit/debit card and this is why 60% of them do it and only 33% pay cash.
