There are many other boutiques hidden in little spots and lots of interesting fashions to discover. This is the city center or one of them and its not a mall.

But now, with globalization, a lot of these independently owned clothing stores are seeing hard times. Greece has its own shoe making industry however, so it can compete directly with European and American shoe manufactures but not Asian.

Its at the corner of Pindar (Pindarou) and Skoufa street. Bottom center is a housewares store called "Exceptionnel" and below right a trendy, pouty, look but don't touch juniors boutique called Miss Sixty. (Don't ask me who thought up that name)
