  • [01] Athenians Packed Varvakios Market

    Athenians packed Saturday the Varvakios Markets to buy the necessary foodstuff for Ash Monday's dinner. There is a great variety in seafood affordable to all, while the majority of the consumers appeared satisfied with the prices.

    In an interview with NET 105.8, Consumer Secretariat general secretary Yiannis Oikonomou said that the cost of this year's Ash Monday dinner is 15% to 20% cheaper and stressed that inspections of prices and quality continue. He also added that consumers can dial 1520 for complaints.

    The Varvakios Market will remain open to the public until 1200 hours on Ash Monday.

    [02] Continental to Close France-Based Plant

    German tyre group Continental plans to close a French plant and cut some 1,500 jobs, the Europe 1 radio station reported on Saturday quoting labour union sources. The plant is based at Clairoix in the Oise region near Compiegne, northeast of Paris.

    Continental declined to comment on the report. However, a spokesman said sales of passenger cars in Europe were down 27 percent in January, adding the firm needs to adjust capacity to market developments. The lay-offs, if confirmed at a Mar. 16 extraordinary meeting of the works council, would be the biggest wave of redundancies in the French auto sector since the global economic crisis started.
