Rousali Shop

«The oldest shop in Greece». Founded in 1864

Many decades back the Rousali family from Prastos owned the store. The first license belongs to Kosmas Univ. Rousalis in 1874 but  the shop have been operating much before  there is no exact date. Back then you could shop all types of textiles ,oil, flour, beverages, grocery items. From generation to generation it was finally passed  to Kostas Kanakis and his wife Calliope who even today saw their own costumes with the SINGER sewing machine !
