Sunday trading

​​​Sunday trading

Under the Sunday trading scheme, shops with a retail area under 700 square metres in size can open on any Sunday.

Shops over that size can open on up to five Sundays per year.  'Sundays' include Good Friday and Liberation Day (9th May).

Shops bigger than 700 square metres can also open on 'special occasions'.  These are set by the Minister for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture.

'Special occasions' includes the six Sundays before Christmas.  This is to allow extra shopping during the festive period.

How to gain a Sunday trading permit

Sunday trading permits are granted by the Constable of each parish, who will consider whether a shop opening will cause undue disruption, traffic congestion, noise etc. Deliveries to shops on Sunday will also be limited at the Constable’s discretion.
