Yes to be more specific any store under 3000sqft is allowed to open, so your little grocery store basically. Unless you are north of the border then bigger stores can open. Best to check though.

Always wondered why England and Scotland have different sunday trading laws....., not just easter but normal sundays.

24hr store up here is open 24hr every day and not this close at 10pm saturday then 10-4 sunday nonsense.

Ive just been to Sainsburys and open as usual and seemed as busy as it usually is on a sunday.

It's not superstition. It's a religious holiday.

Lets be honest, it's a pagan festival.


as for the shops being closed, as somebody who used to work in retail (a long time ago now) I can safely say screw you all, I always hated it when people who didn't have to work the holidays would come in and complain that we were closed on any given day.

I dont follow any religion so I'd prefer the shops to be open to be honest. some people may not want to work on a 'holiday' but others need the money so would rather work.

Its these people who want to work who provide the consumers with a good level of service and dedication to their job, no matter how trivial that job may be perceived to be.

IMO the vast majority will use the 'easter' holiday just to get time off work, which is fair enough, but if you're not religeous then what other reason would you want to take it off?....re the former excuse of using it as a means to get time off.....

I'd rather the shops be open for those of us who do want to get out and go for some lunch out on a Sunday afternoon and shop for the things we need when we do have the time available to us. :)

I agree with you, I remember when people used to stock up on everything and spend time with their families, shop workers included and if you ran out of something, you ran out.
Just another sign of the times I am afraid, less and less family times.
However I would also say your post is actually quite rude and displays a bad attitude.


I remember when people used to die from TB. Times change and we should stop indulging in silly superstitions.

I agree with you too. There have been quite a few posts that have been out of order as well.

you talking to me?

I'm out of order? You're out of order! You're out of order! The whole trial is out of order! They're out of order!

I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!

You can't handle the truth!

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

What we've got here is failure to communicate.

You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.

Snap out of it!

After all, tomorrow is another day!

Nobody puts baby in the corner.

whether you want to work or not never factors into it, just ask any of the people working behind the counter at you local tesco, blockbuster, etc if they were given the choice.

Because it is one of only two times a year when you can guarantee that all your mates are off at the same time, if you want to get together and do something.
