The Medical shop was set up in 1993 in Chania, Crete, continuing the long tradition of more than 100 years of the ARCHONTAKIS family in the fields of health. The shop created a new market environment in Chania, as it is the first shop specialized in medical and orthopedic products, which until then were sold only at PHARMACIES and in a limited variety, without the necessary knowledge and specialization. Later on, the shop included products related to healthy life, creating thus its own market and increasing its clients, as it managed to differ and create its own identity.
In 1997, the MEDICAL SHOP's company was converted into an anonymous corporation (SA) trading under the name GREG SA – ARCHONTAKIS G. COMMERCIAL & HOTEL SA.
In 1998, the MEDICAL SHOP was located in a very impressive and big three-storey building, on one of the most commercial streets of Chania (Tsouderon Street – north stairs of Municipal Market of Chania, Katola region).
From the September of 2013 the Medical shop is located in a very impressive and big three-storey building, on the most commercial places of Chania (Plastira Street – Squere of Municipal Market of Chania)
