Christmas: When will shops be closed

Shops can stay open until  6 pm on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, the Labour Ministry said.

Under the law, they must close on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day, January 2 and January 6 (Epiphany Day).

Employees who may be asked to work in shops exempted from the legislation because of their location (eg in tourist areas),  must be paid overtime.
