In an interview with Rzeczpospolit, Mr Breakfast referred to the act banning Sunday's trade altogether. The tightening of the existing provision should take effect with the new year. Mr Breakfast suggested that a two-year transition period might be needed to allow the Poles to get used to the new rules. At the same time, he announced that an amendment to the act could only be expected after March 2020.
There are some little things we wanted to improve in this piece. It's the misuse of the "mail" statement and the conversion of certain stores into them – which made Sunday's trade possible. Finally, we still gave up on this amendment. The summary and some corrections will not occur until the end of the two-year period of validity of the Act, i.e. after March 2020.
– said MP Janusz ¦niadek, as the daily said.
Sunday's trade ban divides public opinion
Opinions of the Poles on the Sunday trade ban introduced in March 2018 are rather divided. According to a September 2019 Pollster Institute study commissioned by "Super Express," 33% of people think stores should be open all Sunday, 13% in turn believe that stores should be open one Sunday of the month. 24 percent think the stores should be open two weeks a month. Only a quarter of respondents were satisfied with the introduction of an almost complete ban on trade.
