In Law, Sunday is no longer "special." There is some control to
protect small shops and rights of shop workers who don't want to
work on Sundays and controls are possible on early morning
Retailers with more than 280sq.metres floor space are limited to
six hours opening on a Sunday, which can be between 10a.m. and
6p.m. Opening hours must be clearly displayed.
There isn't a requirement for large stores to register with us
(Regulatory Reform (Sunday Trading) Order 2004) but if we get proof
that they are trading outside of their chosen 6 hour period, or if
they trade on Easter Sunday or Christmas day (if it is a Sunday),
or abuse worker's rights then we can take them to court.
Anyone suffering nuisance due to noise, smells or similar
because of a commercial premises should contact the Worcestershire
Hub phone number 01684 862151.
