When will Polish shops be closed in 2019?

In early 2018, a law went into effect phasing in a total ban on Sunday trading over a period of years. In general, 2018 saw most Polish shops closed on every Sunday of the month except for the first and last, with some exceptions to make up for holidays.

In most months of 2019, shops in Poland will be closed on every Sunday except the final one – again, with a few exceptions in months with holidays that fall on other days.

Shops not included in the trade ban include petrol stations, pharmacies, post offices, animal hospitals, and commercial outlets at transport centers like airports and train stations.

The calendar below shows the days throughout 2019 when most Polish shops will be closed by law (including other holidays):

 


This calendar has been updated as of 2 January 2019.

    So if the case is let’s close everything by 2020 then the government should have to pay the loss in income to those who aren’t able to work .

    The average would be a loss off 500zl per month as they are losing a whole week of work every month…

    And the political leaders who voted this crap through should be ashamed or pay up

    And we know neither will happen because they can afford not to depend on that week’s work lost…

      Same thing. Except I live here. Can somebody please explain why is there a “trade ban”? And also what’s with these LGBTQ+ Free Zones? Let me guess some Christian non-sense? (Not trying to be disrespectful).

    This is truly backward a policy by the PIS government restricting commerce on Sundays. Places like Canada survive with Sunday openings and can even get banking done on Sunday, Even so churches are filled with no problem. Kaczinsky get into the 21st century and let our economy be allowed to flourish. you are hurting the small shop owners who have to close on Sundays – get your head out of you ass and wee the real world. Poland is great and we need to move ahead with out needless restrictions. I am Polish but an expat Canadian and only want the best for Poland – Kaczinsky please retire.

    So you prefer to work 7 days a week, do us actual patriots a favor stay in that socialist shit hole you call Canada. How many people in Canada work 6 – 7 days a week and live paycheck to paycheck? How much in tax to you pay? Funny you say to get into the 21st century but what you want for polish people is to become wage slaves just like you have in Canada.. Maybe Canada should actually start caring about its people over money generated. Before you say anything live in that shit hole you reside for over 25 years but I quickly realized that if I had children they would be nothing but slaves to pay of debt for the useless spending the soailist shit hole Canadian government spends money on.
