The State Government has approved extended trading hours for general retail stores in the Perth metropolitan area for the next two public holidays on Monday 1 June 2020 (Western Australia Day) and Monday 28 September 2020 (Queen’s Birthday).

These stores will be allowed to open from 8am to 6pm. Normal trading hours for these public holidays are 11am to 5pm.

Retailers holding small shop certificates can open 24 hours.

The Retail Trading Hours Act enables the Minister for Commerce to vary public holiday trading hours in the Perth metropolitan area, other than on Christmas Day, Good Friday and ANZAC Day when general retail shops must remain closed.

More information on retail trading hours’ laws is available on the Consumer Protection website.
