The changes are gathering pace, with Melina Bay Hotel (formerly Kassimis) looking fantastic, but still a lot of work to do. Sconto is being revamped rapidly too by Dimitra Markets, as is the old Fulvia Travel, to be a Diellas market.
Not much else new, except Tavernaki Taverna is up and running as I think you know already. The village is getting ready for the Summer and is looking very clean and fresh. The fresh fish shop is not opening this year, Thanos has gone down to Kalami I believe, but soon there should be enough food stores to satisfy most tastes.

Giorgios is the larger of the three supermarkets in the village - easy to find.

George from Giorgios has a fishing boat moored in Kouloura. Oddy, father of Thanos, used to go fishing with George until he went back to sea. I believe Thanos has now taken his fathers place.

Frankly, I can't see any gain from closing in Kassiopi and opening in Kalami. Surely the population of people wanting to buy fish and cook it themselves in Kalami must be far fewer than in Kassiopi.
 
Wish them well though.

The outgoings will be less within a existing supermarket but agree that the passing trade may be less - although there are possibly more villas with BBQ's and cooking facilities in the Kalami area. I do hope it works out for him. We will definitely be regular customers.

I think you hit the nail on the head there Sue.
Some of the rents for commercial property in Kassiopi are very expensive.

I would imagine that the shop trade is only part of his business. He probably supplies shops/hotels as well and will not need retail space for that.
