Extra hours approved for 2013 Christmas trading period

The State Government has approved an extension to shop trading hours throughout the December Christmas holiday shopping period.

Non-exempt shops in the city and metropolitan areas can open at 9am instead of 11am on all five Sundays in December (1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 December 2013) and they can also choose to stay open until 12 midnight on Thursday 19 December, Friday 20 December and Monday 23 December 2013.

Minister for Industrial Relations John Rau said the approved changes will benefit both holiday shoppers and retailers.
