This is why we don't need 7-11s in Greece. Kiosks like this are everywhere and sell everything: Press, cigarettes, chewing gum, magazines, milk, snacks, juices, phone cards, beer, ice cream, potato chips, toys, chocolate, water, alcohol and non alcohol soft drinks, you name it. The kioskman himself sits in the tiny booth making everybody wondering where he goes when he has...to go :)
For those wondering how they came to look like this: Just after World War Two, the devastated greek state could not pay compensations or pensions to war theatre victims (amputated, widows of those killed etc). So, it granted them lisences to sell cigarettes in small booths. Time went by and the kiosks became larger and begun to sell other things like magazines, even soft medicine like aspirine. About 30 years ago refrigerators were added. One thing led to another, kiosks became larger and larger and today they occupy the space of a small store, though outdoors. Isn't that an interesting story?
