Thousands of Perth people have flooded shopping centres across the metropolitan area on the first day of Sunday trading. Shopping centres across Perth will be able to open their doors between 11:00am and 5:00pm on Sundays from today.

Shops will also be able to trade on most public holidays, with the exception of Good Friday, Christmas Day and ANZAC Day, when they will remain closed.

The decision to open on Sundays will remain the choice of the individual retailer and businesses will need to look to their own situation to make that decision.

Traders should note that the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985 protects retail tenants from being forced to open on Sundays. These same laws ensure commercial tenants can only be charged operating expenses for Sundays if they open on Sundays.
