There are those who can only go shopping on a Sunday, and also with the family.
So it really is a busy day for retail.
I do remember the days when EVERYTHING shut at 12p.m. Saturday, till 9am come Monday!
I hated it, all was quite, and nothing really to do.
But I was young and silly.....We have far too much population now, a few Million more, here in Sydney, for that to ever come back.
It just won't happen, and it really does free up some services, because the week is busy as well.
I also feel it would be too much, having so many people shopping five and a half days a week.
It's IS of course about money, but more so population....Sorry to say it is now here to stay because of that.
It isn't just a matter of convenience anymore, but if people don't work on Sundays, then the economy would suffer as well, as it would be one less day of trading. Since they economy is in a poor state already, I don't think it would be a good idea.
There are people who can only shop on Sundays because that's when they're free, and there are people who are happy to work on a Sunday. I know I used to prefer working weekends because it left me free to go to university classes during the week.
Have been anti retailers' opening on a Sunday & Public Holidays' ever since it became the norm. Don't agree with it whatsoever.
The workers' are entitled to Sundays' & PUBLIC Hols. off as well.
It's just greed of the almighty $. Has gone beyond the pale.
All the timings worked well before.
Late night Thursday is sufficient. Saturdays' finished at noon, but extension to 4pm only, would be sensible.
