Consumer Protection advises shoppers and shop owners of the retail trading hours for the ANZAC Day long weekend.

All general retail shops in the Perth metropolitan area will be closed on ANZAC Day this Saturday. The only stores allowed to open on this day are those that have applied for and been issued with Small or Special Retail Shop Certificates.

Special retail shops are those that provide items considered necessary for emergency, convenience or recreational goods and include, among others: pharmacies; garden nurseries; hardware and home improvement shops; newsagencies and bookshops; video shops; art and craft shops; souvenir and duty free shops; shops at sports venues; boating shops; motor vehicle spare parts shops; and shops at international standard hotels.

Restaurants, cafés and take away food shops are free to trade at any time, including on ANZAC Day.

In the metropolitan area, Sunday trading for general retail shops will be 11am to 5pm as normal and trading on the public holiday Monday has been extended from 8am to 6pm.

For regional areas, trading hours may vary so businesses and consumers are advised to contact their local councils.
