Sunday is for prayer, not for shopping says Polish Government

“The Polish government is organising a roundtable with trade industry representatives about the Sunday closure.”

“That is reported by Businessinsider. Especially Marlena Maląg, the Minister of Family, stresses that the Sunday, as the most important day of the week, is for family and prayer, and not for spending in the store.”

“Since 2018, Poland has a ban on Sunday trading, writes Notes from Poland. This legislation was introduced by the governing national-conservative Law and Justice Party (PiS). This ban was supported by the Solidarity trade union and the Roman Catholic Church.

Traditionally, Catholic countries are less strict in their Sunday rest legislation than countries with a Protestant tradition. Although Poland is still 90 per cent Catholic, after the collapse of Communism in 1990, the country is seeking a new identity.” [1]
