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…
