Shopping in Thassos and Thessaloniki
For lovers of shopping Thassos could be a disappointment. In every place there are a lot of shops, but mostly Chinese goods as well as in Serbia. The only difference is that the same goods are more expensive than in Serbia. However, in every place, there are a few shops with a bit more designer goods. In Limenaria beside the beach is Replay store, for example.
If you arrive by your own transport for shopping of course I recommend Thessaloniki.
If you do not have a lot of time it is best to move from the city of Thessaloniki to Halkidiki. On the road to Chalkidiki you'll find Jumbo, Mega Outlet, Cosmos, Ikea...
Jumbo's is a children's department store where you can find everything you need for children from the smallest to the age of 12-13 years. You can buy school supplies, clothes, toys, candy... For a tour of the entire department store, you need a few hours. In addition to a huge selection of all sorts of things great thing is that the prices are very low.
I stopped by Jumbo few days ago on the way to Serbia and bought some gifts. Baby cloths cost from one to ten euro, and for children under 12 years of 4-10 euros. For that money you can buy dresses, shirts, pants, shirts... Wardrobe is not particularly good in recent years. Children swimwear costs up to 10 euros. I just glanced at toys, but there were so many that I did not have the patience to look around.
Although I spent 2 hours in the department store during that time I did not look even a third.
Pay attention to the things that are at the entrance. There are toys on a special discount for failures. Usually the price is several times smaller, because the toy does not have a box or something. I bought my niece child umbrella, table and two chairs for 14 euros, because they have no case. Complete with box this costs about 45 euros.
In Jumbo you can find household items at very low prices. So let Jumbo come first if you have children. The choice of clothing is not as big as the selection of toys, especially not in recent years.
Nearby is the Ikea of which I don't have to talk much. In addition to household items in it, you can have the lunch at very low prices. Hot dog costs 60 cents and is very popular and delicious. I bought two hot dogs and ice cream for 1.5 euros and thought it was a mistake. As for the food in the restaurant Ikea prices are also very low. We took three portions of different dishes with French fries with each of them, 4 salads, 2 juice, coffee and payed 11 euros. You can buy a plastic cup for 60 cents and get unlimited pour of drinks...
Cosmos is a huge shopping mall where you can buy high-quality and branded clothes, but not cheap. Bargains exist but by mid-August for summer clothes and by the end of January for winter clothes. There are bars, a bowling alley, cinema, large supermarket, excellent restaurants, a church... within the shopping center are all boutiques that can be found in Tsimiski street.
The Mega Outlet have a really great selection brand name stuff, but at lower prices. In mid-July, big discounts which last until the end of August. During discounts you can buy perfumes at lower prices compared to the free shop. I almoust bought a leather jackets for 250 euros in a regular store Toi Moi, but fortunately did not have the number size. In Mega Outlet I later bought the jacket for 99 euros. When I discovered Mega Outlet for the first time with a friend, of course, first fell comparison of prices. We went from store to store in order to verify that what we bought at regular stores is much cheaper in Mega Outlet and the conclusion was that it was cheaper by approximately 30%. Mega Outlet has the most boutiques with sportswear.
When you're already in that area towards Chalkidiki you can go to Magic park, located next to the Cosmos, but also to Waterland which starts working on 26th of May. The ticket costs 14 euros.
