Greek shopkeepers feel economic pain

Store fronts shuttered and small businesses badly hurt by downturn that has left country in crisis.

    Greeks go to the polls on Sunday amid a crippling economic crisis, with many voters blaming the country's troubles on the Socialist Party and conservative New Democracy party which have taken turns to rule for more than 40 years.

    Small businesses have been hardest hit by the downturn. Almost a third of shops in the capital Athens have been forced to close.
