No more Sunday shopping?

A new law banning Sunday trading in Poland has gone into effect. 

Next year trade will only be allowed on the last Sunday of the month before a wider ban halts shopping on most Sundays from 2020.

It was introduced by the Solidarity Union and endorsed by The Catholic Church. They said they introduced the change to ensure retail staff get free time on weekends.

People will still be able to shop online and smaller  locally owned shops like bakeries and gas stations will remain open.

Sunday shopping became a popular family pastime in Poland with the advent of the free market after the collapse of communism in 1989.

Switzerland and Norway limit Sunday shopping, while Austria has a blanket ban.
