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.
