Sunday Trading Has Started! Were you prepared?

Posted on by Mark Fernandez

Sunday trading came into effect over the weekend, were we all prepared?

With the changes to the Retail Trading Hours Act 1987 department stores, major supermarkets and general retail shops can now trade on Sundays between 11am and 5pm. The changes took effect on Sunday, the 26th of August for all shops in the Perth metro area.

Many will have already made their decisions and plan to stick by them but I am sure there are some of you out there who are either still hesitant or are unsure they have made the right decision. If that is you then go back over your plans and take the following into consideration:

Remembering that the decision is yours as the business owner and that you will need to make that decision based on a sound business case and that the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985 protects retail tenants from being forced to open on Sundays.

For more information about the legislation changes see the Sunday Trading Factsheet released by the Department of Commerce, or if you are seeking advice you can contact Mark Fernandez on 0412 345 611.
