Comments: 1 reader has left a comment

CONSUMER Protection wishes to clarify the retail trading hours for the Anzac Day 2010 long weekend.

Normal trading hours apply for Saturday, 24 April – 8am to 5pm.

All shops, including those in the Perth and Fremantle tourism precincts, are required by law to be closed on Anzac Day – Sunday, 25 April – unless they are classified as small or special shops.

A small shop is one owned by up to six people who operate no more than three retail shops and in which no more than 13 people work at any one time.

There are no restrictions on the type of product they may choose to sell.

Special retail shops are those that provide items for emergency, convenience or recreational supplies, such as pharmacies, garden nurseries, video shops, hardware and home improvement shops.

Small shops can open 24 hours a day if they choose.

Special shops can open between 6am and 11.30pm on any day.

Commissioner for Consumer Protection Anne Driscoll said in most cases, these shops respect the community significance of Anzac Day and don’t open until the completion of commemoration services.

Monday, April 26, is a public holiday in lieu of Anzac Day falling on the Sunday and all general shops in the metropolitan area, except those in the Perth and Fremantle tourism precincts, will be closed.

n All shops in the Perth and Fremantle tourism precincts can open between 8am and 5pm.

- Small and special shops can open for business.

- Trading arrangements in regional areas are subject to local arrangements.
