Easter Sunday Trading Policy adopted

South Waikato District Council recently adopted an Easter Sunday Trading Policy. This new Policy allows retailers to trade on Easter Sunday if they wish to open their shop.

The Policy applies across the​ district and across all shops.

"Council was keen to give retailers the choice to open or not," said Deputy Mayor Jeff Gash. "We're pleased also that this Policy applies from this Easter so if a retailer wishes to open on Easter Sunday this year, they are in no danger or incurring any fine."

This Policy does not mean retailers have to open, nor does it mean that staff in retail are required to work on Easter Sunday. The Policy has no effect on Good Friday.
