A Foodland retailer in Thebarton has again asked the State Government to allow it to trade for extended hours at the end of the year.
This retailer wanted to trade for extended hours because he believed that local roadworks had impacted on his business.
Now that the roadworks have concluded this independent retailer has asked the Government to not only allow extended trading hours on weekends but also to allow extended trading on public holidays as well.
“These requests show how silly and out of touch our shop trading laws are,” said Treasurer Rob Lucas.
“Retailers shouldn’t have to come to the Minister on every occasion to seek a special exemption.
“The Marshall Government’s proposed new trading hours laws before the Parliament at the moment would allow these independent retailers to trade whenever they wanted without having to seek an exemption from the Minister.”
