The Greek shopkeepers determined to beat the slump in tourism

Despite officials in Greece insisting that the crisis has not affected the country as a top tourist destination, there has been a slump in bookings.

The Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises says since the election on May 6th, there has been a 50% drop.

But shopkeepers on Pandrossou Street are not prepared to wait around for a stable government to be formed and come up with a plan of action.

The market's peak season has already arrived, and like many others, they are taking the problem into their own hands.
