No,the British Food Shop don't sell Andrex, but the nearest equivalent I have found is Lidl's 4 ply.

Chrissyg, no Farmer is next to Apicorno cafe - there is a small road separating them which takes you to the seafront. They have fruit and veg outside at the front and you can also enter from the rear via the seafront. I last bought hummus in Inka in August. I only noticed they had it a few months ago so perhaps they only briefly stocked it.
Someday is now : )

Also, in my experience, Greek supermarkets are not brilliant at stock control. Wait until something sells out, when you have a bit of spare time order some more and when it arrives put it on the shelf if you have the time. Preferably wait until the busiest time of day on the busiest day in the week and then fill the aisles with restocking trolleys, pallets etc. I once went shopping in the Synka on the corner of the Kissamos road and the road down to Agios Apostoli beach. There was not a single shopping trolley outside the store. They were all scattered around the store full of goods for restocking the shelves. The aisles were full of them but there were only a couple of people doing the restocking

If you mean OPPOSITE what used to be `the old bakery', then yes. On the corner by the entrance to the car park on the front.

To be horribly pedantic, το Φαρμα translates as the farm; the farmer is ο αγρότης

@chrissyg regarding coriander. If you are in The Apokoronas there is a small shop directly opposite the Piraeus Bank in Kalyves called Filema. Coriander is known as cilantro in the US and sometimes labelled as such here; they have bunches of fresh directly opposite the entrance on the back wall. A lovely wee shop with very helpful staff.

@chrissyg. I happened to make a trek to the metropolis today ha,ha it is for me in to Kalyves. Filema also has humous in their refrigerator- thought you might like to know if you’re still here and looking.
