Sunday trading

Under the Sunday Trading Act 1994, the opening hours of large shops (internal sales areas of over 280 square metres) are restricted to:

  • the six hours you want to trade (which must be between the hours of 10am and 6pm; and
  • remain closed on Easter Sunday (and on Christmas Day when it falls on a Sunday).

Large shops no longer need to be registered with us to trade on Sundays.
