We visit Heraklion

This month’s global retail travelogue spotlights the Greek island of Heraklion. It may be a place that’s rarely on the list of people’s retail destinations, but there are some eye-catching local retail stars that await those who venture to its shored.

There is certainly more focus on brands but not necessarily the same international circuit brand names recognised elsewhere. This makes for a more refreshing and original shopping experience where there is a genuine sense of being able to explore something new.

We visit Natura to discover its range of attractive locally produced gift lines and tourist goods; stop off at womenswear retailer, Just Brazil Beach Culture; and find the ‘hidden gem’ in the Crete mountains that is the Margarites Pottery Village.
