Association: Most malls to stay open Sundays
Most shopping malls will stay open after the Sunday closing legislation takes effect on March 15, the Hungarian Mall Association said. While larger mall retailers, which have more than 200 sqm of floor space, will have to close, smaller shops, restaurants and cinemas can stay open.
The association noted that similar legislation passed in Croatia was repealed within half a year and Slovenia abolished their law within a year. The association added that Austria is planning to introduce measures easing their Sunday closing law, and France is passing amendments to scale back their Sunday closing law as well.
The following is a list of planned closings by members of the Hungarian Mall Association:
