Does anyone know, please, whether any of the M&S banches in Greece sell their Extra Strong tea bags? Thanks.

If no one is coming to visit (my guests always have to bring T-bags), get someone in the UK to take them out of the box, put in a polythene bag, stuff them in a jiffy bag and post them out to you.

T-bags

Postby raph » Fri Jun 12, 2009 7:21 pm

That is what my sister-in-law did in the past - remove the bags from the packet, put in a jiffy bag and send out to me.

I have enough stocks for the moment, bought in the UK.

I just thought that M&S Greece might be like M&S Cyprus where the
T-bags are readily available. Thanks.

M&S told me some years ago that the Greek branches are all franchises.
That accounts for the eclectic selection of stock, and why ther is no Food Section.
I can see why perishable food would be a problem, but ther is a real money-spinner here for a branch selling non-perishable M&S food, such as teabags.
The "English" food shops are fine, but pretty expensive for most items.

And why would Greek ones selling relatively small quantities of imported food be any cheaper. Low volume usually means increased cost and, were I a Greek shopkeeper, I'd set my prices as high as the market would bear [maybe a few cents cheaper than the "English" shops].

Regarding "English" food, in Kalyves the small IN.KA on the road to Armenoi has Gammon steaks, Black Pudding and, [horrible thought] "Pukka" beef or chicken pies. There were a couple of other items but I don't remember what.
