With date of 03.01.2012 the new Regulation has started. The new “Showcase” in Alanya says that goods have to be presented behind glass. The new regulation is primarily to protect the goods from, for example excessive sun exposure during the summer months. Also with regard to saving energy the law makes sense.
Also, bread boxes, beverage coolers and newspaper stands are affected by the new law; these cannot be presented in front of the shops anymore.
