Trading hours

Retailers are reminded that restricted shop trading laws still apply in Invercargill and Bluff. The Council decided not to have an Easter trading policy, which means that the restricted shop trading laws still apply.

The following  is a link to assist people with their entitlement to open, but a quick rule is, if they couldn’t operate last year, they still can’t this year.  It is their responsibility to determine if they fit the rules. Restricted shop trading days

Note that the rules are different in different areas. For example, Southland District Council has different rules from Invercargill and Bluff.
