        Q & A Anyone Help? Somebody dropped by our main website posing the question. ( See the Comment section on that page – bottom )

        Really are there any left? Personally I cannot bring any to mind except possibly computer repair guys, satellite shops (now on the way out) and household electrical items repairers?

        Again, can anyone advise if they have come across a second hand shop, perhaps in any of the bigger towns?
        I mention that because to run a small business these days in Greece is very difficult, vis-a-vis the tax situation.

            Several responses off the forum but on FB, came from:

            Yvonne Payne commented “There is a good shop on the road between Kritsa and Agios Nikolaos. Open Tuesday and Thursday. It is called Vocal, raising funds to care for feral cats. X” Stuart Walsh commented “There are some in Rethymno and Xania”.

            Thank you for the help

                In Haniá there are two. One is behind the bus station. The other is near a square but I don’t recall exactly where.

                In Rethymno there are at least two although one is more antiques.
                Go through the arch* & turn right then left then left. It’s on the corner.

                *The arch that leads into the old town from a major road.
