Q: Why are Greek Creations prices consistently lower than other Greek retail sites?
A: The answer is simple; volume buying & strong vendor relations. Since 1995 Greek Creations has strived to offer our customer’s the lowest prices in the industry by taking advantage of high volume purchasing as well as state of the art production facilities which in turn keep costs down. We are then able to pass along these savings to our customers by offering our products and services at a great value.
