The Shop Trading Hours Act 1990 (the Act) was amended in 2016 to enable Councils to decide whether retailers in their districts can open on Easter Sunday. Prior to the amendment, the Act only permitted shops selling certain types of goods (dairies, service stations and garden centres) to remain open on Easter Sunday.
